Code can't be "in the Public Domain" _and_ "for educational only, not
for commercial use".  Either it's in the public domain, which means it
can be recycled in any derived works and eevn relicenced, or it's not.

Well please let us know what that code is so we can remove it if it's
not properly licensed.  We can't address the issue without knowing what
the code is, much as SCO allegations against Linux can't be addressed
without SCO saying what code is involved.
