from the commo yahoogroups, the author of commo passed away in 2003 but his 
relatives declared commo as freeware, even offering fred brucker's pc to anyone 
interested. at some point, warez keygens was even encouraged to get it 
registered. sadly, the source code was missing.

the nag screen was removed in v7.6, the last version was v7.7. there is no 
added feature in the registered version.

can't they be added as-is, as legacy products? they are both practically free 
and distribution is encouraged (commo as shareware). i see no need for source 
codes since they work great by themselves. maybe just an addendum textfile is 
needed to explain their status.
