So let me get this straight: To distribute a package or even mirror the
source code, you have to get a "prior written permission in hardcopy
(letter or fax) from the author". If you do it commercially, you also
have to pay a fee to the author.
That sounds like some really, really stupid license. Does the author
really want anyone to *use* this module? Have you talked to him about
the numerous problems of this license?
