I'll be darned. I just read the V2 GPL online and it USED to have the 
provision in it that if you modified another's code you owed the 
revisions back to the original creator, who was then free in use the 
improvement in his program. I recall. It ain't there now. I'm gonna dig 
in some old CD's and see if I can find that version of the GPL. It 
seemed like a common courtesy to me.
