I think that's the sort of agreement that Derrick has in mind (as opposed
to the FSF-style copyright assignment, which however nice in the abstract
would be a major pain and isn't really tenable).  Personally, I'd rather
sign it once rather than providing a new copy with each code submission,
since I can readily agree to something like that.
