I say dual license.  This would force us to take all community based 
contributions and rewrite them into GL2 (ala MySQL) but it gives us 
flexiblity.  The only thing I want to prevent is ISP's leeching from us 
by offering GL2 as a service offering and not giving anything back.  I'm 
not saying they have to give money (which would be nice) but hosting 
(like pair does now) or some other value add for the project would be nice.

Just my two cents.
