IANAL. From my understanding of the copyright assigment, this is not
possible. You assign the copyright to RedHat or eCosCentric or
hopefully sometime soon FSF. You have none exclusive rights to use the
code yourself, but you no longer own the copyright. You can put your
name in the contributers section of the header on each file and in the
documentation etc.

Might be nice to actually state this in the description property, so
that people like me don't need to ask :-)
