Do you really want to copy the code verbatim? I mean, there's a lot of
stuff which would need quite a bit of massaging to get working in
postgres. I'd say just look at it, understand it, and then write
something that will work. The copyright won't matter then.

BTW, I seem to remember something about the stuff in the RFC not being
good for some reason, not unique enough or too predictable. Do you know
anything about that?

Have a nice day,
