thanks for releasing this solid and well-structured framework. I'd really like to use it for my proprietary project, but as far as my understanding of the GPL license goes, I'd have to make my source code public to use Multi-Touch Vista. This is a real show-stopper. Have you evaluated releasing the project under LGPL which would allow it to be linked to proprietary projects? There's also the so called GPL linking exception and the BSD license seems to allow linking to proprietary software also.

By the way OpenOffice and all the Mozilla software are licensed under LGPL also. The Mozilla products have LGPL as one of three possible licenses free to choose.
