I'll try to fiddle about with it, but if someone finds some time to do this before i can, i wouldn't mind as well. :)

UNMO3 returns IT, XM, S3M, MOD, MTM files - so i guess copying the loader code for UMX files might be the best idea.

Did I get it right that the source of the library will not be available? Not that it would be requisite anymore, but just to know.

there's no source indeed. but there is no source of the winapi either and you are using it. :P as long as you link it dynamically, i don't see a problem personally.

apparently, there's also some unofficial UNMO3 code, released under GPL...

Nice to know, although GPL sets restrictions.

Nothing conclusive has been decided, but none who were asked about it(all devs except Ericus who was unreachable) were against BSD(the newer version).

well... i dunno :D
there are other (bigger) projects with their own license. but having a look at those license may be a good idea. like the mozilla license or apache license...

These "licenses" are just disclaimers following a normal license agreement.

I would advice against it, because these licenses are usually created by law-enforced people. Making such license yourself could cause holes that allow users to abuse the laws doing things that were unintended. In the end it could harm the OpenMPT community or perhaps even the end-user.

If we use a license from say... Creative Commons, then we'll be sure that every hole has been covered.

OK...

MPL: Basically, anyone can take the code and do whatever they like with it, including rebranding it, selling it, not giving credit, etc. Is this what you want? :/

What would the benefits of switching to BSD be?

Among other things, to loosen restrictions imposed by GPL; ever wondered why Audacity doesn't provide built-in VST support? BSD is just one of countless choices to clarify the existing license issues.
