In this spirit, I'm currently checking against NR in C, 2nd
Edition.  (And I don't anticipate finding any infringement at all), but,
in my mind, it is essential for each committer to have the 
responsibility of making sure all submitted code is original - checking
an implementation against a copyrighted material with full disclosure
from a contributor.  We're getting close to a policy here.
