This was a versioning error on the web site (we have had to review our
license), which also says that it is released under a "liberal source
license" (http://www.elj.com/lss/definition.html).  This has been rectified.

p.s. We could note however that the license disagrees with only one point of
the open source definition (restricting
commercial use), and hence does come close. Patents are not mentioned at all
in this definition as far as I can see.
