Yeah, it would suck.  Would *COULD* include it with Piper, but we would need
to write an exception to our own license (a modification of the L/GPL), and we
would have to say that Piper has a mixed license, which I think would suck

Let me know if you have any luck contacting the authors.  If you don't, I'll
give it a try.  I may have to contact Lockheed or whoever by phone, but if I
reach the legal department, I'M *POSITIVE* that they *WON'T* let us have it or
change the license (lawyers).
