as im the one who has made the port of the fftease to jmax,
i can say that it is pretty o.k. to port the jmax object to whatever
one whishes .....
i had a long e-mail conversation with christopher and eric, and
booth agreed (and were happy, too !) to port this _and_ place
the result under the gpl.

the only thing that is not under gpl is the pv-lib parts that are used
in fftease. they are simply free as in "free beer", i.e. no restrictions
apply to them. everyone should and could use them as (s)he wants.

and yes, if someone makes a backport to max/msp, that would be strange,
but why should one ?? they are already available as free max/msp objects,
so if one makes a backport, (s)he makes seriously the same work twice.
