That's probably just a result of my poor communications skills.  I did
include very brief LICENSE and FUTURE files with the sources, and those
files probably led you to that conclusion.  For clarification, I do
intend that the program be open source, but I feel that there are some
things that I should still finish up myself before foisting it off on
any potential contributers.  It's not a matter of "I don't want you to
have it" -- it's more a matter of "I don't feel right burdening you with
filling in holes just yet" (for the generic "you").  (That makes it
sound like it's not usable: it's quite usable right now.  There are just
features still left to add.)

Plus, as with many other packages and maintainers, I just want to
control any official version.
