Hmm, as it's for the Mach (??) Micro kernel, I don't think that apple
have any special claim to put there name on it (ie you called it Apple
MkLinux), I don't know, but I think they'd have to GPL it. As for going
in the "offical" source tree, I've no idea, but I think it'd be helpful
in doing native Linux ports (ie if you want a native linux port, and
there's a Mach port, you can development can take place much more easly
(How do you go about porting something like the linux kernel to a new
architecture anyway ?).
