As Patrick noted a week or so back, the server which hosts sebhc.org is
also set up with a version control system; there is no reason not to
register the VH8 code here and work on it within Dave's guidelines -
acknowledging his ownership and re-affirming the public-domain nature of
the work done. An explicit copy-left statement could be added referring
to all derivative work.

As Dwight so often asks, "Is anybody listening to what I say?"  ;>)
