I'm not sure the JDOM license actually is incompatible. There may be
some confusion at the FSF because the JDOM license uses 4 clauses to say
what most Modified BSD licenses say ion 3. Therefore, they make think
it's the incompatible 4-clause original BSD license instead of the
compatible 3-clause modified BSD license.
This is a good reason not to go making up your own licenses. Even if
they're legally correct, they just confuse people.
