I had a private email discussion with Mark Russell on licensing earlier
this year.

1) The current license is not meant to prevent UPS being included on
   CD-ROMs of Linux, FreeBSD etc.

2) Releasing UPS under the GPL requires clearance from the other people
   who wrote parts of the software (e.g. the menu editor) and the
   University of Kent.
