Both of those seem good ideas. As long as you use a licence that
is known to be a free software licence and generic (the PHP
licence is not generic), then I think many people will be happy.

Beyond that, which you choose is a tactical decision based on:
 * your beliefs
 * the preferences of your collaborators
 * the licences used by any competitors
and more besides.

Good luck!  (Oh and get legal advice if you need it.
IANAL like http://people.debian.org/~mjr/legal/ says.)
