OK, in that case it's fine.

No, we can release it under one of them, as the author explicitly
permitted this.  In fact, the <util/crc16.h> already has the license
rules on top, so what needs to be done is to add Dave's name there,
and he should also be mentioned in the AUTHORS file.

1.7.2 should be fine, ideally, I'd like to have 1.7.1 out by end of
next week, and 1.7.2 shortly after, with the option to include as many
of the "ready to go" bugfixes and patches as could be incorporated.
For 1.7.1, my priority is to get bugfixes for fatal bugs in but not
much more.  (If other developers like Anitha are fast enough to get
their highest prioritized additions in within that timeframe, that's
OK, of course.)

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
