That product was originated by Toby Dickinson, based on a prototype by Petru Paler, with contributions from several other folks, per: http://dirstorage.sourceforge.net/ and http://dirstorage.cvs.sourceforge.net/dirstorage/DirectoryStorage/doc/HISTORY.txt?revision=1.2 Relicensing it will require consent from Toby and the other copyright holders: I'm assuming that the arrangment you discuss above fits the bill there.
