Uhhhh..... duhhhhh.... it wouldn't be.  /me needs to re-read the
OSD every once in a while.  #3 says explicitly that a license has to
allow redistribution under the same terms as the license of the
original software.  So you could say something like:

"You may redistribute this software under the terms of the BSD
license.  If your name is Bob Scheifler, you must include the source
code."
