per the lincense agreement that I have is as follows
MODIFICATION. The Source Code may be modified by Licensee without
the prior written permission of Licensor. Any modifications made to the
Software will continue to be subject to the terms and conditions of
Besides the final product will no longer be an HC11 but a 6309.
Modification is probably not a correct term anyway. Using this design as a
template would be better.
