I'd have to say the chances of this are extremely unlikely. I'm much
more inclined to propose that we drop texlive altogether. It is a
licensing nightmare, a tangled bundle of millions of files with little
apparent organizational structure, and no overarching licensing
analysis. I started trying to do a license audit on texlive 2008, but it
would probably take me at least a month of doing nothing except auditing
texlive to finish it.

To be fair, the existing texlive has the same problems, I just was
unaware of the scope of things until recently.
