This is my favorite! Oh, wait, no, its better:
The fortran version is GPL, but the C source version is proprietary,
but the obscured C source (*cough*) is GPL (actually, the GPL header
may have been pasted there by a 3rd party to placate me). If I
weren't on so many mailing lists I might be able to concentrate and
figure out C/Fortran calling conventions to fix this..
