You download a big .zip after reading that BSD-like license so any
reasonable person would assume that it applies to the whole thing. It
would have to be clear if that were *not* the case, with a link to the
SqueakL and an explanation.

How is that possible? Magic ;-)

To Alan's "let sleeping dogs lie" quote about licenses I will add "don't
look a gift horse in the mouth".
