Hi Michael,

This is not a full review (sorry, not enough time tonight!) but I did
notice one item that confused me.  The prosper license says "LPPL" but I
looked through the docs and could only find the following (see below)
which appears to be very BSD-like (which is fine).

So should the license be listed as "BSD" instead of "LPPL" ?
