Mozilla to update the MPL

Also, exceptions are nice and some of them extremely useful (e.g. the GPL/OpenSSL exception) but you can't call the result exactly GPL/MPL/whatnot. In terms that we are used to, you're essentially forking the license. Replying "but you can always add an exception" is similar to replying "but you can fork the software". You can do that obviously, but the point was, as far as I understood, that there's a "bug" somewhere in the original license.
