I'd like to repeat the question: Is the version for which Steve Underwood's
changes are under public domain usable or not?

I don't think so.

That's nice, but afaics, this license has nothing to do with the code in
The original code is (c) Carnegie Mellon University. It can be downloaded
he license can be found there in:
and states:
The Carnegie Mellon ADPCM program is Copyright (c) 1993
by Carnegie Mellon University. Use of this program, for any research or
commercial purpose, is completely unrestricted.  If you make use of or
redistribute this material, we would appreciate acknowlegement of its origin.

Together with the original (not the latest) changes from Steve Underwood that
are public domain, we can definitely (re-) license the G.722 decoder under
"LGPL 2.1 or later"
