Oh, that's just _abundantly_ clear: The "Small" (and "TK") packages

It would _never do_ to naively expect license details either on the Web
page or within the relevant archives. Clarity would take all the fun
out of it.
In any event, I'm always delighted to be able to move a package out of
http://linuxmafia.com/pub/palmos/proprietary/ into the main collections
-- which I can now justify doing for PilotManager.
