Alas the code is pretty ancient (1992), and neither the code, nor the
CWI pages offer references on who to contact regarding ADPCM. Anyway,
I've found out the code is not only used by current Debian packages of
xwave and xmp, but according to legal notices also by some commercial
packages. Now I believe HP lawyers letting slip this licence into their
products is a good indication that we can safely include it as well.
