[linux-lvm] LVM and SPL



sistina this week switched the license for the GFS tools from the GPL
to the SPL 

http://www.sistina.com/Sistina%20Public%20License%201.0.pdf 

I'm worried now that Sistina will switch the license for LVM.
However, considering there was almost a fork of the project (mostly)
because of something as "simple" as mailing list policy, i guess
openLVM would pop up again pretty quickly in that case...   Is it
concievable that the kernel patches will stay GPL'ed but a more
restrictive license applied to the userspace tools ?
