It should be noted that I chose a MIT/2-clause BSD-style license for
Niwt, so any sharing would necessarily be one-directional (towards Wget,
not the other direction), much as it has been for the Curl project.

(I am a believer in the GPL; however, in a project made up almost
entirely of small, trivially-rewritten programs, a BSD-style license
made the most sense to me. If someone wants to redistribute a version
where one component had to link against proprietary code, I didn't see
any value in restricting that, since they could simply write a
replacement in most cases within days. Likewise, should anyone
distribute improvements without source code, it wouldn't take long to
reimplement them.)
