My first thought there was just to make sure that no one could use his book
for evil (ie, make money), but make it so that it could still be altered to
make it more useful to certain specific groups of programmers (say, just as
an example, maybe 2600 programmers?).  That's what got me thinking GPL.

Admittedly, I was kinda hoping he'd respond with, "Well, my agent has
another license that he'd prefer, the LMNOP license."  To which I'd say,
