+GNU General Public License
+==========================
+
+Preamble
+--------
+
+
+The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share
+and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to
+guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the
+software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most
+of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose
+authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is
+covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
+your programs, too. 
+
+When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our
+General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to
+distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish),
+that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change
+the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can
+do these things. 
+
+To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny
+you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions
+translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the
+software, or if you modify it. 
+
+For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a
+fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make
+sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them
+these terms so they know their rights. 
+
+We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer
+you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or
+modify the software. Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to
+make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
+software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its
+recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems
+introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations. 
+
+Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish
+to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually
+obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent
+this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free
+use or not licensed at all. The precise terms and conditions for copying,
+distribution and modification follow. 
+
+TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
+---------------------------------------------------------------
+
+
+0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice
+   placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms
+   of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such
+   program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program
+   or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing
+   the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or
+   translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included
+   without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as
+   "you".
+
+  Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered
+  by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is
+  not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its
+  contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been
+  made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program
+  does.
+
+1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as
+   you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
+   appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and
+   disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this
+   License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of
+   the Program a copy of this License along with the Program. You may charge a
+   fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option
+   offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
+
+2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus
+   forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such
+   modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you
+   also meet all of these conditions:
+
+  a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that
+  you changed the files and the date of any change.
+
+  b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in
+  part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be
+  licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this
+  License.
+
+  c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you
+  must cause it, when started running for such interactive use in the most
+  ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriate
+  copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that
+  you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
+  these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License.
+  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print
+  such an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to print
+  an announcement.)
+
+  These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable
+  sections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can be reasonably
+  considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License,
+  and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as
+  separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole
+  which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on
+  the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
+  entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
+
+  Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your
+  rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise the
+  right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on
+  the Program. In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the
+  Program with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
+  a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope
+  of this License.
+
+3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under 
+   Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 
+   and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
+   
+  a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code,
+  which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a
+  medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
+
+  b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give
+  any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of physically performing
+  source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding
+  source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a
+  medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
+
+  c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to
+  distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only for
+  noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code
+  or executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
+
+  The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making
+  modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source code means all
+  the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface
+  definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and
+  installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source
+  code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in
+  either source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and
+  so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that
+  component itself accompanies the executable.
+
+  If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to
+  copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the
+  source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code,
+  even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the
+  object code.
+
+4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as
+   expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify,
+   sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically
+   terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have received
+   copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses
+   terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
+
+5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it.
+   However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or distribute the
+   Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you
+   do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the
+   Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of
+   this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying,
+   distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it.
+
+6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program),
+   the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor to
+   copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions.
+   You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of
+   the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance
+   by third parties to this License.
+
+7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement
+   or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are
+   imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that
+   contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the
+   conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy
+   simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent
+   obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Program at all.
+   For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution
+   of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through
+   you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
+   refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
+
+  If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any
+  particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply and
+  the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances. It is not
+  the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other
+  property right claims or to contest validity of any such claims; this section
+  has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software
+  distribution system, which is implemented by public license practices. Many
+  people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software
+  distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
+  system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to
+  distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that
+  choice.
+
+  This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a
+  consequence of the rest of this License.
+
+8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain
+   countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original
+   copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an
+   explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so
+   that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded.
+   In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the
+   body of this License.
+
+9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the
+   General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar
+   in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new
+   problems or concerns.
+
+  Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
+  specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any later
+  version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of
+  that version or of any later version published by the Free Software
+  Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License,
+  you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
+
+10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs
+    whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author to ask for
+    permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software
+    Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make
+    exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of
+    preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of
+    promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
+
+NO WARRANTY
+^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE
+    PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE
+    STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE
+    PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED,
+    INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND
+    FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND
+    PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE,
+    YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
+
+12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL
+    ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE
+    THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
+    GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE
+    OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA
+    OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD
+    PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS),
+    EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
+    SUCH DAMAGES.
