There are 6 new files in the patch for DERBY-646, which makes a
significant contribution, in my opinion, so that iCLA would be needed.
(My apologies if this info already got repeated in another thread).

One of the questions I would have for Stephen, if Professor Benoit can
locate him, is why 4 of the files have "Copyright 1998, 2004" and two
others have "Copyright 2004". Does Stephen own that earlier work from
1998 and has the rights to grant license to the ASF? --At the very
least, we would need an on-list conversation with Stephen to clear the ip.

If Stephen can't be located, there's always the option of pointing to
DERBY-646 on the Derby Wiki so others can find his work and compile it
in. Not ideal, I realize.
