I would better like us to choose a license and to go with it. It's not
easy "Everyone is free to choose and stick with the license they think
it's best." since lots of problems may rise

I do not have any real comment but I felt the necessity to use the word
"anarchy" in some way. Sorry but I don't believe it would be feasible :(

I really hate people rewriting the same code. Code gets rewritten
everyday, I would like to contribute limiting this behaviour if possible.
"my wheel is GPL and my wheel is FreeBSD". It's always a wheel, please
let's do not waste time...
>Well, it's true. Most of the work has been on the website rather than on the actual code.
You cannot start writing code from istant 0 for a bucket of reasons. 1st
reason: it is not as easy as writing a solitaire game, 2nd reason: it
has something to do with an obscure hardware and its low-level
management... I agree that a lot of work has been done for and on the
website but we have not wasted time on the code front, we are (I hope)
doing things in a well planned way (apart from the latest discussion
about licensing, which is everything but not planned ;)
