All the code currently bears the BSD-ish SRFI license (see any SRFI).  As
the author, however, I hereby grant permission to change the license and/or
the copyright ownership on the Guile version of bitwise-other and the tests
to LGPL if that is useful to Guile.  Let me know if there is formal
paperwork to fill out.
