If the benchmarks which I submitted are going to appear in a copyrighted
book, I would like explicit permission
to appear that says that reproduction of the code, and reprinting of the
tables with additional data, and similar modifications or corrections
can be done without copyright hassles.
If it appears that I will lose control of programs that I wrote
as a consequence of RPG's paper, I would prefer to withdraw my benchmark.
Although I think that an MIT press copyright of such a program would be invalid,
let's try to set the correct precedent this time. We messed up
royally on CLTL and Digital Press, in my opinion.
