In my opinion, using GPLv3 has been the easiest of the options.  It  
means that we can use code that is licensed with a BSD, MIT, Tcl,  
Apache, GPLv2, LGPL, GPLv3, etc..  So its the most compatible to the  
code that's out there, meaning thinking about licenses less writing  
more code that everyone is free to use :)
