Would you please spell out what it is
that they "may not make easy"? 


I looked at that page, but lacking the context, I can't understand it
well enough to divine the point that your message hints at.

We could consider forking that code in a limited way: adding new rules.

In general, we should cooperate with upstream developers, but we don't
have to jump through hoops to do so.

I can only guess at the context this is about, but it sounds like
you're suggesting that it may not be clear what form of the code is
the real source code.  Do they not say?  Does their source release
include the XML?  Does it include Make rules to translate the XML into
