I don't understand these questions either. 

If you want to borrow the code of -sxpose-, in whole and in part, and
use it somewhere else with appropriate acknowledgment, that's fine by

I don't expect people to ask my permission to borrow code. 

That's all just standard practice so far as I am concerned. What's the
agitation about?

I do need some clarification here. Most likely I will put this into

1. Should I put it into outreg2 and forget to tell people that Nick
Cox had anything to do with it?

2. Can I take possession of the codes by renaming it and putting my
name on top, then put it into outreg2 and then tell people it was all
my work?

3. Could someone be adding insult to injury by republishing both the
renamed codes and the improved version of outreg2 and claim publicly
that these codes are better than the older codes written by Nick Cox
and should be used in preference to them?

I could rewrite sxpose from scratch, but that seems like a terrible
waste of time.
