You might also ask the openbsd folks if they can remove the advertising
clause.  For some things - I believe this is more or less automatic.
If I understand right, Berkeley has said it's ok to remove that clause
from any source they own.  For other things, the openbsd folks may be
willing to contact the original author and make arrangements.
