Either you misunderstand the nature of the letter from Berkeley, or
you haven't actually looked carefully inside said newly imported
search code.  8-)

In particular, the part of the "new imported search code" (hsearch*.c)
which this code tests has an identical license and is also owned by
me.  I submitted this test code because I thought it was a bit lame to
have the hsearch code I wrote w/o the corresponding test code, which I
also wrote.

Nobody has approached me about 'scrubbing' hsearch*.c.

Now, if y'all want to talk about that code before doing anything rash,
well, you know where to contact me.  8-)
