Generally the protocol is "go right ahead, it's version-controlled".
Just out of curiosity, what were you hoping to use the LIC code for?

It is totally possible there's a big in my code. In particular David
Huard pointed out there may be an indexing bug that means that instead
of integrating forward, it integraes backward twice.

If the code works right, you shouldn't see any shifting, but Cabral et
al. point out that it's very important the algorithm and kernel be
symmetric, or you can get circles turning into spirals and the like.
