Hm, I hope you think about that carefully :)

There are a few benefits to GPLv3, like the patent stuff and broader
"compatibility", that are well worth having.

The AGPL stuff sticks in my throat a bit, but I think in practice it's
not going to be a huge problem because AGPL won't be that widely used.
Poor excuse, but giveth and taketh - being able to re-use Apache
licensed software is the giveth :)
