further digging lead to this package:
which match the license at
and Chas Williams patch, which my patch is based on, is matching
perfectly: code + license
Furthermore, Steve Underwood got back to me today telling me that he
had a version
with no license restrictions. I am trying to confirm with him which
version it is and will get back to you.

If that scenario proves correct, we would have
CMU orginal work--> unrestricted license
Steve Underwood work --> unrestricted licence
Chas Williams --> no restrictions
mine --> LGPL v2.1 or later
