Even if they are -- and is anything serious patent-free in the USA? --
what's the worry for bug-fixing, at least?  The SISSL patent clause
clearly covers the `Original Code'.  It may be possible to get legal
advice on the ramifications of more significant changes.

I doubt whether ARCo is an issue, as it's probably only dbwriter that's
of much interest, and it can't be difficult to do the job from scratch.

Also, what's the problem with the docs and repo history?
