Being pragmatic, I think it is better the MIT style license. e.g.:
somebody wants to take the tile algorithm from dwm for some
proprietary project (yes, there are projects where the code cannot be
shared), if dwm is GPL they will just copy it without telling to
anybody, to avoid further legal problems; but if it is MIT they can
tell it is your code without any problem (and even report you
bugs/improvements, if that's the case).
Anyway, I think this whole discussion is pointless, because while
Anselm releases under the MIT licenses you can just take it and
re-release under GPL, if that makes you feel better.

Just my 2 cents,
