Shammash opened a bug about a licensing issue on slirpvde.

Danny Gasparowsky released slirp with a strange "advertising" clause, which is 
incompatible with
GPL in its literal meaning.

Of course slirp was already acknowledged to Danny in all the documentation of 

I have added the sentence requested by Danny in the man page, the "usage" of 
slirpvde and even on
our wiki.

On the other hand the "request for advertising" can be an issue when slirp code 
is linked with
GPL code.

I propose to change the license of (just) slirpvde.c to BSD, it uses libvdeplug 
(dynamic linking) which is
a LGPL, so should be okay.
