I don't know if woe is necessarily fight:  given that we are talking
about a component which is served separately from any of our Python
code, without even the (debatable) trigger of a Python import to cause
our code to be a "derived work", the "mere aggregation" clause is likell
to apply to distributing ExtJS with a ZPLed Python library / application.

Having an unambiguous FOSS license on the code has to be good news for
those who would like to build and distribute such components.  ZMySQLDA,
for instance, is a ZPLed component which depends on the non-ZPL MySQL
client libraries, which doesn't seem to cause problems.

We *still* can't put the ExtJS code itself into svn.zope.org, but
perhaps we can now allow checking in ZPLed code which uses it.
