My primary concern is: Who is the Copyright owner NOW for all the various
AllStar related modules and as of what date were they released GPL2??  
I've got to have this answered in a legally acceptable way (e.g.:  
notarized affidavit).

Incidentally, ASL, Inc., *SHOULD* be very concerned about this, too. 

As of the last several months, I now have a secondary concern as
well---W9CR's Cyber-hickery.
