[Cabal] Copyright assignment

Hey guys,

I've been going over all the tax exempt paperwork.

The lawyers recommend requiring copyright assignment for contributors,
and that we try to get as much current code assigned to IM Freedom as
possible. This is, obviously, so that we can better protect our rights
over it (the same reason the FSF does it, for instance). We should be
able to make it really easy for contributors to do this. Google has a
web form that apparently is adequate.

I'll definitely be asking the lawyers more about this, but I wanted to
gauge your opinions first. Is requiring copyright assignment something
you guys are in favor for? Dead against? Somewhere in the middle?
