I think that I would be amenable to this.  John, you are the other
relevant author of the SPSS reading code in PSPP.  Are you willing to
relicense the SPSS reading code to GPLv2+?

Jack: Which files, particularly, do you want relicensed?  Obviously
sys-file-reader.c, sys-file-reader.h, sys-file-private.h, but those have
dependencies.  Do you have a complete list?
