At the moment it is released under a very restrictive license to  
alpha testers, which I why I can't simply post a link to a copy of  
it.  But when it is officially released it will be released under the  
Apache 2.0 license, which will be an improvement over the existing  
pine license.

Note also that UW's imap libraries are released under a very non- 
restrictive license.  So really it's just Pine that's been under  
their peculiar license.
