Hi Robert,

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.
