After 1) reading both Jeet's and the MT C code, and 2) re-reading the
appropriate section of a book on copyrights, I would not want to post
Jeet's code without permission from Makoto Matsumoto and Takuji

I have emailed Makoto-san asking such permission, and also inviting
him to join the discussion here. If the response is favorable, the
problem is solved.
