Any GPL-compatible license will work.  Even MIT.  Possibly even the 
so-called Creative Commons variation on public domain, which is 
meaningful in jurisdictions without a concept of public domain.

The hard part is liberating the parts of the system that are currently 
inder the existing Modula 3 license.  They will have to be replaced if 
we can't get the copyright owner to respond usefully.

And that's a lot of work.
