No. But if that's what you read then it is confusing. Reality is, that header has been on a good deal of my public code (hypermail and others) and no one has had a problem with it or used it outside of it's proper usage.

Selling it standalone is much different than incorporating it into a compilation. In a compliation of packages it is a supporting piece, as a standalone it is the focus. Doesn't really matter. This was an old header from nearly 7 years ago...
