  Ah, that was interesting.  I was told that there was previous
conversation with Joseph and he actually replied to say "he has never
contributed to Squeak".  That is true in a sense that he didn't
publish it for Squeak, but it is in the image.

  Joseph, if you don't mind, could you also agree to make it public
under the MIT license, and just a gesture could you sign:


and send it via a physical letter or FAX or scanned PDF to Viewpoints
or me?  It somehow doesn't matter whether the intended license was SqL
or not...  At least the signed document would make it clear.

  Thank you very much!
