lightweight Plex86 changes license to MIT (non-copylefted)

Item posted by Robert Millan <robertmh> on Thu May 8 08:52:41 2003.

Kevin just announced [1] that his lightweight version of Plex86 will
be relicensed to the MIT license, which is basicaly an open permission for everyone to relicense it and release propietary versions of Plex86. [2]

Personaly, i wouldn't like any contributions of mine to Plex86 to become non-free software, so i think this is a valuable reason to keep this fork going.

LGPL for this original fork to remain (posted by Drew Northup N1XIM, Sat May 10 23:57:59 2003)

I want this project to remain LGPL as a matter of respect to those whom have already contributed code, time, and effort to this project.

I need to talk to Kevin about project naming issues--as since this is the original Plex86, I don't want him to try to force us to change our name to something else.
