I Am Not A Lawyer
And Don't Want To Be

I don't think we can put this license in on ibiblio. I also don't  
think it should be public in our source tree... I understand that  
this may make things more difficult, but it sure seems to me that  
we're violating the terms of the license agreement... Can you  
convince me otherwise?
