Any exeption to the GPL is allowed but what is the rationale behind
the "All right reserved" notice?.  It is not nessesary and may be a
legal problem because it contradicts the GPL header.  Please use the
full GPL notice ( with
any aditional exeption you wish to put, but not the propietary "All
rights reserved" notice.

Also, the Ping is not a threat, but an reminder.  We delete the
projects when the mantainer don't resposne in more than a week in
order to keep clean the pending projects queue.

You can implement the missing feature yourself and senme a patch.  I
suppose you have the time and the will to contribute to z130 in the
very same manner as you had the time and the will to search something
to criticize of that project.  Don't you?.
