GPL & Multinomials

Hi Agner,

Have you given any thought to releasing your random number libraries under a license other than GPL? I'm working on at least one project that uses a different license, would not want to switch, and would not want to include GPL libraries because of possible license "infection" issues. (This may be a misunderstanding on my part, but I think if a project links to a GPL library, that means it also needs to be GPL.)

Also, what about a multinomial function call that returns a single value, rather than an array of counts? I wrote one myself for convenience, although it is not optimized in any way. Would you be interested in such a method, or would you be willing to write one yourself?
