Well, I was focusing on his "what's the difference", which I can't
answer. I guess I'll risk it: The rationale is that MIT (presumably)
allows people to derive from the work without keeping derived works
open, and that's what glyph wanted now that Twisted has matured. Also,
the Twisted codebase is (presumably) not at the whim of glyph any
more, since all contributors (if they want) are listed as copyright
holders, not just glyph.
