I'm interested in using your jQuery plugin for a project, but that project is going to be under the GPL, which is incompatible with the CC-BY-SA license. The same purpose would be accomplished by both, but CC-BY-SA is not meant to be used for code at all. Can you, at the very least, dual-license the code? Failing that, could you give me license to use the code under the GPL?

How do you feel about the MIT license?

That works, yes! The GPL would be closer to CC-BY-SA, but MIT would allow me to use the code.

For shits and giggles is dual licensed under MIT and GPL now. I wasn't happy with cc-by-sa anyway :)
