[jdom-interest] Imcompatibility with GPL

I tried to register a new free software project at Savannah and learned
hat JDOM is not
compatible with GPL and thus cannot be legally combined with GPL'ed
I have previously heard several people claiming that, as JDOM uses a
BSD-style license, it should be GPL-compatible.  But I just found out
this is not the case.

Has anyone considered removing or changing the minor issues that make
JDOM incompatible
with GPL? Its a shame that I have to change to another XML parser. =(
