Gasp! Looks like lawyers are even more tortuous than C++ programmers
:-) I thought a "permission to copy, use, modify, sell and distribute
__this software__" gave you a permission to copy, use, modify and sell
the software regardless of whether the author of this or that
improvement put his name at line 5 or line 234 of the source file.
Anyway, if they suggest you a simple change that solves the issue
(maybe just moving my name above the permission part?) I can commit it
to the CVS. It's no problem at all.
