In addition to the question of possible license non-freeness raised by
others, I have some impression that wavelets are a patent minefield. If
this software was distributed by Debian, would we be subject to possible
patent enforcement issues? As a volunteer Free Software project we have
neither the money nor the desire to license patents.
