I've added a license (copyrighted but allowing free use), added
reentrant versions of the functions, and added documentation. I also
regenerated the Makefile.in using automake1.4 --cygnus (automake1.4
1.4-p6-9 from Debian), but you should likely check that my version of
automake did the write thing. In general, should patches include the
regeneration or not?

I haven't yet done this.
