This is great news - I hope it finds its way into the crypto library.
One question - is this license a derivative of something I would have
heard about? IANAL, but have just read the license it sounds fairly
permissive in that it doesn't mandate distribution of source code
(BSDish). Was this the intent? Did I miss something?
