I have two things to say about this;

1.  It sounds like MIT/X11 is most in line with what you want.  It 
pretty much says in laymans terms; "Take this and o what you want with 
it.  You can use it commercially.  You don't have to open-source your 
stuff.  You cant blame me if it breaks something."
2.  I _STRONGLY_ suggest reading the license you pick fully before 
commiting to it.  You cannot unhatch an egg.
