Hmm. Working from source listings of an existing proprietary product whose
IPR the owners have a long history of protecting. Not sure that is really a
good idea.

Does the FreeVMS project know what level of access to source listings, or
for that matter, what level of past contamination, HP is ok with? I'm not
suggesting that HP should have a veto on the project, just that FreeVMS
might want to know if it is picking a fight...

Jim.
