Please don't perpetuate this myth. You can't just strip off the BSD license and replace it with the GPL - the BSD license *is* the license to the code, and the BSD license doesn't give you the right to modify the license. In fact, it specifically says that the license must remain intact.

All the simple programs have been written.
