OK, I've had a look at the CD-ROM, and I really can't make much sense
of the license agreement.  It all depends on how you interpret various
terms such a "software" (provided under the BSD license, but at some
point intended to include the documentation).  I'm not confident
enough to just make the docco available, but if somebody could clarify
the matter (presumably with Lynne Jolitz), I'd be more than happy to
make the documentation available.
