Al, okay, I'll join that list and hope alpine is as many other opensource software that is pretty mature on its 0.8 version. But, I'd think Washington University better take an approach like "release early, release often". That might help. Off topic though.

Two things, alpine is probably being released under a different semi-proprietary license that all UW software gets released under, including pine, so it's definitely not BSD licensed or (L)GPL licensed by any means.

At the moment it is released under a very restrictive license to alpha testers, which I why I can't simply post a link to a copy of it. But when it is officially released it will be released under the Apache 2.0 license, which will be an improvement over the existing pine license.

Note also that UW's imap libraries are released under a very non- restrictive license. So really it's just Pine that's been under their peculiar license.
