I have no objection to dual-licensing the core libraries under BSD and  
GPL v2 (and future versions) on the condition that the project asks  
any contributors to the core libraries to dual-license their  

Someone asked if anything actually uses these libraries in non-Box  
Backup projects. Some of my stuff does (you may have noticed a few  
classes which aren't used by Box Backup), and think it's reasonable to  
ask that future versions continue to be available for such non-GPL use.
