That can't be right, because Guile has already imported several modules
of similar size without copyright assignment. e.g. SSAX, match, and
several SRFI implementations.  Htmlprag is distributed under the LGPL
2.1 or later, which should be fine for us.

Of course I'd like to hear a pronouncement from one of the official
maintainers, but I see no reason why we couldn't import htmlprag and
start modifying it.
