Actually, I've been considering doing just that. Use the code, that is. I'm
afraid there will be no large monetary gifts from me any time soon. :-)

I haven't really given the WDG code a serious review, but since it
implements many features I need, I thought it'd be a good idea to steal a
few ideas, if not code, from there. What kind of license /is/ it under?
Will I run into problems if I integrate it into other products?
Specifically, I'm currently fiddling with the W3C Validator, and submitting
patches back to them as I go along. Will I (or the W3C, for that matter!)
be bumping into any problems there?
