Why was the Eclipse Public License chosen ?  This license is not
compatible with the GPL[1], so no GPL licensed app can make use of
this code :-( For example it makes it impossible to use this code to
assist in supporting OVF in virt-manager, virt-install or virt-image


  "The EPL 1.0 is not compatible with the GPL, and a work created by
   combining a work licensed under the GPL with a work licensed under
   the EPL cannot be lawfully distributed."
