Correction, it is not "another EPL'd implementation" because jYMSG is
not under the EPL. The reason the Yahoo provider is distributed
through OSUOSL and not at Eclipse.org is because of this license
incompatibility. Thus, we are interested in having people implement
protocols under the EPL or an EPL-friendly license.
