I'm thinking there must be someone who's already done this and has harnessed the (substantial) knowledge of this list and others to put them into a format that doesn't make my eyes glaze.  Does anyone have a reference that gives overviews of the various differences b/w the CC licenses, the GFDL, etc?
Please excuse my cynicism on this. :-)

It's a bit like expecting the copyright fairy to overfly Washington and 
sprinkle commonsense fairy dust.  Those guys would be more likely to 
scramble the jets first.
