See the discussion on the list a year or two ago.

The current license is rather unclear and I'm not even sure I'm allowed to use
ups in the way I do (to debug sometimes commercial projects) 

It e.g. also doesn't allow it to put it on compilation cd roms, making
ups available to an wider audience. 

I'm not at all attached to the GPL for this, just would like one of the
common free software licenses (BSD, GPL, MPL, ...?), which are well understood 
and spell out the user's rights clearly. GPL seems fitting though.
