Hi Kevin and Sebastian,

I would like to open up the rrdcached client interface so it can be used
from non-GPL applications. For that I would like to re-license the two

  src/rrd_client.h and

to a more permissible license. I was thinking about using the MIT
license or the LGPL "2.1 or later".

As far as I see, you two are the only other copyright holders on those
files [0]. Would a license change be okay for you? If so, which license
do you prefer?


[0] It is kind of hard to tell because SVN doesn't differentiate between
    author and committer. The mail goes to the mailing list as well, so
    if I missed a contribution please speak up! The files list me as the
    sole copyright holder which I believe is outdated.
