It will be interesting to see how this gets sorted out.
^ This is exactly what I was thinking as I was reading it.

I've also wondered about how there can be changes in license with different versions of software e.g. Qt.
What happens if someone contributed code under the GPL and then that code was made available under the LGPL? That particular developer might not want his or her code to be used for commercial software. I guess it's up to the license holder. If that be the case, why couldn't Apache simply reissue it under their own license? Would they even need or want to?
