Lots of people assume that since the Mozilla license is not 
GPL-compatible, and since the EPL was inspired by Mozilla, then EPL is not 
compatible with GPL.  This may be true under US federal law, but is it 
true under Swedish law?  Swedish law and IP practice are different to that 
of the US, and until I hear a Swedish IP lawyer giving an informed legal 
opinion, the question of compatibility for me is still open.
