Ouch...what's an API spec worth without published source code?

Ok that's better.

I don't see any licensing information there however, and the source
files include @author tags which make me wary of possible undocumented
copyright ownership.

Werner, do you think you could talk someone into publishing (or even
donating to us) a version of that source code with a license that's
compatible with the requirements for core dependencies of Apache
projects? Apache License or MIT-style is the simplest.
