Ahem. We're used to 'some paperwork'; the only downside is that even
the paperwork isn't available yet. I'm very interested in this
enhancement, so I went ahead and contacted Jack H Pincus
<firstname.lastname@example.org> as the web page suggests, and got this as a reply:

copyrighted material owned by the University of Washington. We are
working with the University of Washington to resolve this issue and will
contact you when we have a solution.
Not even a hint at when that would be...
