Well, he did have the additional complaint that, in addition to any legal problems with relicensing, he considered a thorough audit of the code to be a huge time sink without any real benefit to the project, and thought developers should be spending that time improving emulation instead. With that in mind, it's hard to see Haze spending lots of time sorting through several years of his code submissions, but perhaps he would allow his code changes to be relicensed if others were already doing the auditing.
