That YES should be attributed to Thomas Bushnell rather than me.
I don't think it's free, though the licence seems to allow anyone to
automatically generate a file that contains the same information and
then release the new file under a licence of their choice, which is
what the FSF are going to do, according to a recent message in this
If possible, it would be helpful to distribute together with the new
file a script that converts the new file into a file that is (almost)
identical to the original file, thus allowing people to check that the
conversion was lossless. Also, if you can't be bothered to patch a
program that uses the original file to use the new file instead, just
pipe the input through the converter ...
