Use caution on legal advice you do not know the end result.....
There is "NO GPL" of any kind in the source, to date........

At the time when I put the GPL into the package there was not a legal
question in the horizon. Since 2.9.6 was the last publish source, the
legal questions if decode/reverse-engineering of a protocol came into
question. Since it was the best interest of mine to comply with source
removal, I did so.
As for requests of anyone holding copies of my currnet source, no one is
willy to give it up until I can find a working solution to GPL it finally.
Until this event passes, it can not happen. So don't bother asking.
