mentioning that Apache projects don't "take" code.  Yes, I work for the
same company that wrote this code, but I probably don't have the
authorization to "donate" it, and it has not been a quick process to get
other code donated.  But now the code is substantially different from the
2) Can I change the header to an Apache header?  I'm pretty sure I'm not
supposed to if we were using the original code intact, but again, now it
is substantially different.
