Hi Mike: Is there any way to disentagle the non-disclosure code from
the rest of teqc? It would be a pity to lose teqc as a viable tool just
because Lou retired. Our project at UCAR/CDAAC uses teqc all over, and
we have been willing to accept binary-only code since we assumed it
would be supported by UNAVCO.
