"Open Source" and "Free Software" so if they accept that your license is
according to the FOSS defintion others believe you and it removes the
headache of other developers in using your code. If FSF says it is a "GPL
compatible Free Software license" then anyone can mix and match your code
and other GPLed code out there.

If you don't do it then everyone who are going to make use of your code will
have to spent time on deciding compatibility and worry about legality.

"Value your freedom, or you will lose it, teaches history.
`Don't bother us with politics', respond those who don't want to learn."
