Hey, if that would work, then cool.

In regards to the license, from that thread you posted: "We have an issue
here that we want to drive through legal, which is releasing IronRuby under
multiple licenses. This shouldn't be a problem, but it is an issue if we are
going to try and package IronRuby for release ourselves (which we should
do). Like a lot of things that we do around here, it's always simpler if we
could take one step at a time. I suspect that MsPL + MIT as a start would be
nice. MsPL + CPL would be fine too. But MsPL + GPL + LGPL would be a much
harder sell."

So does that mean it can be release under JUST the CPL? Because in that
case, we should be sweet?
