I could do. But I already did some time ago and failed.
It's not real fun to get them away from forcing the sentence "This product
includes software developed by CDS Networks, Inc.".

So perhaps  someone else has more luck persuading them ;-)
They won't agree changing the whole thing, I guess.

Perhaps they agree on changing the license in that way, that it
automatically switches to X11, when the C#-port is finished, by adding:

"This code is licensed under the X11 license, if ported to C#."

Or would such a sentence conflict with US law?
