We should force them to stay out-of-tree until any and everything is resolved.  Heaven forbid that the code should be merged, contributed, and improved upon as a community.

That isn't the only decision criterion.

Overall the c files look reasonable to me: a few little things like large
on-stack arrays built at runtim which I think could be assembled at
compile-time, various unneeded casts, a bit of space-vs-tab confusion, but
nothing serious leaps out.

So perhaps that header file was unrepresentative.  It is seriously
duplicative and bloaty though.
