I think it would send a bad message if 24.1 would be released without
the source code (*.wy) for the various Semantic parsers (*-wy.el IIRC),
as well as the parser generators themselves and the corresponding

seem to jibe with the spirit of the GPL, whether or not we are the
copyright holders and consequently allowed to behave like downstream
never could.
