Wow!  If that is what it might be, it would be great news.  But we had
better verify it carefully, because it sounds too good to be true.
Would someone like to check the details thoroughly?

Here are some questions to check:

1. Does "front-end code" mean the JavasCript code for their payment
pages?  Or else, what is it?  Is it code to use in apps?  The case that
we're concerned with is payment to web sites.

2. Did their release include _all_ of the client code that a user
must run in order to make a payment to a web site that uses Stripe?

3. Do their payment pages actually send that source code, as released?
Or do they send use minified or a compiled version?
Either way. does it exactly correspond to the released source code?

4. Did they label the code they send, for LibreJS to recognize?
