I hope that it is more than a rumour. Certainly in Seattle last year it got quite alot of mention at the Q&A sessions, but no definates.
Personally I do not like the BSD style licenses, as it tends to lead to companies appropriating code and making out it is theres, by adding a few extensions/differences. Take IBM with the Apache Webserver or Netezza with the PostgreSQL database.
I would prefer a half way house, basically one that follows the general principals of the GPL, but allows a company to make extensions which do not have to be disclosed for a period of time, say 6 months. Which gives the company the advantage for 6 months over there competitor, but overall everybody would benefit.
