Yes, that was a concern of mine at first as well, but I decided to pursue
it at least for my own use.  And then when I went to retrieve the
sourcecode tarballs I discovered his license change affecting both djbdns
and daemontools.  Fortuitous, sort of a belated Christmas present.  (for
those unaware, DJBernstein's software was always available under a
'non-license' that permitted source-code redistribution only, but on
28Dec07 he placed djbdns and daemontools, and other packages on other days,
into the public domain, so that distribution of a modified binary is now
