The new BBDB also has a file bbdb-snarf.el which is a complete
rewrite of the old file, where only the general concept of "snarfing
records into BBDB" survived.

This snarfing can be a neat thing, but it is certainly an add-on to
the BBDB core.  So to avoid whatever problems, it can remain with
other add-ons at savannah.nongnu.org without affecting BBDB core

Actually, the file says:

;;; Copyright (C) 1997 by John Heidemann <jo...@isi.edu>.
;;; $Id: bbdb-snarf.el,v 1.44 2006/05/26 21:20:07 fenk Exp $

John Heidemann has an FSF copyright assignment on file and I can
check with him about bbdb-snarf.el.  The above email address appears
to be up-to-date.  What kind of document would the FSF need from
him for this file?

The subsequent maintainer of the old bbdb-snarf.el, Robert
Widhopf-Fenk, assigned "past and future changes" to the FSF.  Is
this sufficient?  I could also try to contact him, though I have
found him difficult to reach.

Would this be sufficient for "Copyright by the FSF"?
