As noted in the README, several source files -- src/step1.c, src/step2.c,
src/step3.c, src/step4.c, and src/tree.c -- were obfuscated to make them
unreadable to humans.  This was interpreted as a violation of the GPL,
which requires offering "the preferred form of the work for making
modifications to it."  Fortunately, James Michael DuPont convinced the
author to release the pristine source code, which is what this package is
based on.
