I submitted it per your request earlier, but have since made 
another revision of it.  So that anyone interested can follow 
its development, I'll be sticking with GitHub for revisions.
I also sent the link over to debian-legal to get their opinion.

I've updated a discussion of the language, so that my logic can
be evaluated -- https://github.com/tip-o-the-hat/fmn#readme
