It's very possible that my memory is bad... I guess BSD is ok, after all
my intent with writing jmlib in the first place was to get JuggleMaster
ported to as many platforms as possible.

I'm a bit allergic when it comes to reading license agreements though,
got any tips on where I can read about the differences between these
different licenses. Also, does this mean that we'll release everything
in CVS (for now that would be wxwindows, pocket pc and that ascii
platform you ported it to (hehe)) as BSD or will there still be separate
licenses for every port?

I've only recently added my email to this mailing list... I hope all new
platforms in the works will be announced here, I'd like to keep up to

Ok, I'll do the reverse of what I asked for then, leaving 630 as the default,
and 35 balls as an option.
