Certainly he has done much for SimH. He also did take on changes
from others, or made changes based on input from others.
For example, he also worked with me to improve pacing of input towards
simulators so that applications like Kermit work better.
He could be difficult to work with, but that this thing got out of hand
the way it did surprised many people, I think; at least it surprised me.

I am preparing commits for this (with a phrasing as suggested about
questions around the license), so I can commit this soon-ish.
