Whoa, this is not about SPL!  We are reviewing GAP (Generic Attribution
Provision); contrary to what Socialtext has sometimes strongly implied,
SPL does not equal MPL + GAP.  I have changed the page to refer to GAP.
 In my opinion (I think shared by a few others), SPL is *much* worse
than GAP.  Socialtext may well switch to GAP if it is approved, but
they're not using it now and it's supposed to be generic anyhow.

I've moved both pages to GAP *, and started correcting them to refer to
the correct license.
