I don't think that you can infer that ryao is a rabid GPL hater, just because he takes a different side in this particular discussion.

I'm taking the GPL-side, but I'm certainly not a BSD-hater. I have released code under permissive licenses in the past, and probably will in the future when it's right to do so. It's just that I prefer the (L)GPL for most purposes.
