Let them use BSD were no loophole is required if that's what they want.
Eh... we do. Except that it's Apache 2.0, which is just like BSD but with an anti-patent-burn clause.
And BTW, parent post is spot-on.
Why do you even bother, man?
Knitting is pretty easy to pick up, and kind of fascinating for a geek: knitting basically boils down to creating an enormous, intricate, single knot in such a way that kind of falls together into a garment of some kind. I found it right up a nerd's alley.
Now, the problem with knitting is that 99% (if not 6-nines or better) of knitters are women, so all the patterns are for women's clothes and such. Thus it's not something that's realistically a long-term hobby for a guy, but if you as a man walk into a yarn store with actual knowledge, I guarantee you will find all the female attention you want. The first time it happened I seriously was weirded out, because all I really wanted was some reasonably durable, 100% cotton, worsted weight yarn and a set of double-ended needles for some socks I wanted to make.
So, it's something that will get you attention. It's probably a hobby that'll only last you a year or two, but at least you'll get some socks out of it.
 - I have never met a fellow straight male knitter in person, and I am aware of exactly 3 online. So I'm not stereotyping, it's the God's Honest.
