This is a bona fide problem, the "Use in commercial applications requires written permission" clause is certainly not GPL compatible, so this code absolutely must go. As a side note, this also indicates the OSGeo incubation code review process is probably too trusting, one person can't catch everything, and I did not catch this one in my review -- having more than one person perform a review of the code seems a good idea.

We can't release 3.2 until this is stripped, and I think to incentivize us I am going to remove these files and take XMLTester out of the build.
