I would like to point out that we (Creative Commons) explicitly state do 
not recommend using our licenses for works of code; they obviously can 
be, but they were written with traditional works (text, images, etc) in 
mind and therefore are not tailored to the world of code.  We recommend 
using an OSI-approved license when releasing works of code.
