The Apache License is a fully permissive, inclusive, non-viral, Open Source license.  You
are entirely incorrect.

No, again, you are wildly incorrect.  Under the Apache License, TDF has full ability to use
all code.  The reverse, however, is not true, as their downstream code cannot be used.  Hence,
the best outcome under the current licensing regime is for all core development to be done
here, and for TDF to be a downstream consumer.
