I've done a chunk of this work for other projects, including INN, and I've
released that code into the public domain. You're welcome to use any or
all of it; the best current source for it would be to get the latest
CURRENT snapshot of INN from ftp.isc.org in /isc/inn/snapshots and look in
lib/xmalloc.c and lib/error.c, as well as include/libinn.h.
All of this code is clearly marked as being in the public domain, but if
the powers that be are still worried that there might be copyright issues,
I can try to go another round with Stanford's OTL and try to get them to
sign my paperwork. I didn't have much luck with a blanket assignment, but
I may have more luck with something a touch more specific.
