It already has the Apache License (v2), and it uses a NOTICE file (per
the license), and our packaging is tighter/stronger than typical
Apache releases (per Justin's note). Are there other items to an
"Apache release" that are needed to demonstrate that the svn project
understands the proper release process?

The 1.7 release is not on the schedule at all, while we're going to do
a 1.6.7 release in a few weeks.

We're naturally very reticent to disrupt a prior-release branch with a
massive relicense.
