See if he'll switch it... We'll worry about the rest if he says no - but we can't leave it like this for long...

This would be my fault

Two options, listed in my preferential order:

(1) I'll try to track down the original author and ask about distributing under a different license
(2) investigate something like this
https://github.com/adrpar/libhilbert?files=1

Looks like an apache license, which I'm no expert in but might do the trick

Also contains the fwd and bkwd maps I think we need

As for its use, this is critical to our 'partition agnostic' business, which while frustrating at times is the only way I've been able to easily do M->N restart.

Switching libraries altogether does also run the risk of losing comparability with existing files, hence my strong preference to (1)
