Yes I have personally spoken with copyright holder Mark Mathews, when this question arose
last year, who assured me that our use of his product is exactly the kind of use he intended
for it.

IBM CPL, looks like BSD style, but *obviously* we need confirmation. FWIW JUNIT is *not* bundled
with the JUNIT test runner in IBM's eclipse,  which I suspect may be a licence related issue
as ANT, TOMCAT and other apache software is included.
