D - Licensing

I know this has been raised before, but I'm still unsure of the type of license
that applies to both the compiler and libraries.

I was wondering if we could have an entry in the FAQ that goes beyond the "Will
D be open source".  An entry that explains exactly what the licence(s) are, and
what ramifications they will have on the commercial use of D?

Thanks,

Tony
