The maintainers took a look but spotted a non-technical change right off the
bat that isn't necessarily a deal-breaker but does mean a huge amount of
work and potentially could cause problems.

Looks like 0.5.2 relicensed to the Apache Software license v2.  That license
is incompatible with the GPLv2  (It is compatible with the GPLv3).  That
means that we need to audit all of the software we ship or could potentially
ship that uses bytecode-assembler and will need to remove any that ship
under the GPLv2 (GPLv2 only... GPLv2 or later would essentially become GPLv3
or later... which then would mean we have to audit the relationship of all
of that code to determine if changing that to GPLv3 causes any further

Would you be willing to change the license back to PSF or ZPL (with
versions if possible)?
