Since the copyright is The Regents of the University of California, one
wonders whether the their relicensing statement, where they dropped the
4th clause retoactively, covers this, too.

I can't find the instance of that statement which I saved, nor via goog,
so I cannot be sure whether it limited the relicensing to software which
was released under the original BSD license, or coverred all software
copyrighted by the Regents.
