[GRASS-dev] Copyright and license issue

I have a question about putting into add-on repository the code 
containing completly new terrain analysis system.

Code will be on classic GPL license, however I would like to TEMPORARILY 
restrict the name of module, scientific idea (completely new) and 
permission to code modification. It means that everybody can use, 
analyze, rewrite it for own purpose etc, however if someone would like 
to modify original source code in repository should have our permission 
(for some time).

This is because the code and entire idea is strongly under development, 
however we were asked to publish it for geomorphological community (also 
for submitted paper)

I think that it probably will never happen that someone would like to 
modify it (except of course bugs), however I would like to keep control 
on code integrity for scientific discussion as long as it won't be 
finished as an idea.

Any suggestions??
