You're right. I did, and considering your remarks: I'll change it back to the
GPL. Consider it done, even though the distribution currently at sourceforge
still mentions the AFL. I'll add an errata to the current version stating the
change of copyright, and in the next version it'll be formally 
altered back into GPL.

PS: I hit the return key too quickly on the previous posting, containing
merely the earlier sent mail by George. My apologies for that.
