libopenspc only includes the SPC portion of the emulator... I'm certainly not 
shipping any mysterious .dat files -- it's also a separate project from 
SNEeSe, though the same developer works on both it and SNEeSe's sound core 
(homepage is http://home.comcast.net/~brad.martin1/) . It is released under 
the Clarified Artistic (the SNEeSe bits) and the LGPL (the actual library 
interface). I guess I'll leave this up to the wizards of -legal -- I'm not 
any good at this sort of thing...

Philipp Kern is my mentor for this package and xmms-openspc.

-legal, please CC me, I'm not subscribed.
