Honestly, I don't understand how CDDL can be conflict with BSD license  
since it's file based license rather than whole like GPL. Also, it doesn't  
force BSD license to be change to CDDL. Sun doesn't see any problem for  
FreeBSD to ship with it either. Feel free to explain more to me in private  
to avoid license war in this list.
