Thanks for the background, Phillipe.  The legal heads at don’t seem to have a problem with that extra
clause, either.

The question then is whether we want to include it.  I don’t see how it
would be beneficial for anyone to redistribute one of the interface
files if it has been changed incompatibly, so I guess I don’t see the
need for it.
