Add Apache 2.0 license

Issue #21 wontfix
Matt Bishop created an issue

LGPL makes it impossible for most commercial products to use trove. I know, it shouldn't really, but ignorance being what it is, if you want more adoption of Trove, please add the Apache 2.0 license to your list of licenses.

    Personally I'd love to allow this, but there are prior contributors and copyright holders that won't allow a license change (or addition) to Apache (and really anything other than LGPL).

    Sorry. We may try to remove "encumbered" code sometime in the future, but it will be a big job.

    And just to re-iterate for the record: as you already stated, LGPL is completely compatible with commercial usage.

    No, that's a lot of the hard part. It's the original contributor, so it's all mingled in with the development done before 2.0. Likely it will be a rewrite of most things.
