This is great news - I hope it finds its way into the crypto library.
One question - is this license a derivative of something  I would have
heard about?  IANAL, but have just read the license it sounds fairly
permissive in that it doesn't mandate distribution of source code
(BSDish).  Was this the intent?  Did I miss something?
