I think it would be nice to avoid pulling in additional copyrights for
such trivial functions.. It's not that they're incompatible (license
seems okay), just that it makes for a lot more copyright status to
document and track. In my opinion, effort would be better spent just
reading the man pages and writing one- to five-line functions that do
the same thing.
