Then you never change licenses? Somebody have to take the risk to
release software under the new license in order to have it challenged in
court. It is logical that those who need the new features of the license
(the samba team) takes the risk. Those who don't want to take the risk
have to rewrite the software under whatever license they prefer. They
have to be solidary because they use the work of those who want the new
license.
