Here's what `help core-copyright' says:
| Portions of this database are derived from the LambdaCore
| distribution, available for anonymous ftp at parcftp.xerox.com. The
| following copyright notice applies to new and derived works within
| this database.
This says that the following copyright notice only applies to
JHcore-specific things in LambdaCore; since NOBODY KNOWS what the
copyright status of LambdaCore is, this is the best we can do.
| Copyright 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995 by Ken Fox.
People who did work on JHcore transfered copyright to Ken because we
were too lazy to form JHM Incorporated.

Basically, you can do anything with this code as long as you keep this
copyright notice around.
