So Panos got permission from the FSF to use cvt.c in xinetd, under his own
copyright?  I'll send him some mail and ask him.  Worst case is that we
have to rewrite ap_cvt, is all - it's about 50 lines of code.  Really
gnarly code too :)  Unless we can find it in an unencumbered source
somewhere.  Or we can just ask Stallman for an exception...?
