A lot of problems i've heard expressed about this were actually about
other CC licenses, not CC-BY-SA. I've heard complaints about CC-BY, or
CC-Sample+, or other CC licenses. CC-BY-SA is similar enough in spirit
to the GFDL that free-content ideologues shouldn't have much of a
problem with conversion between one or the other. At least, i
certainly hope there wouldnt be too many problems.
