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?
