[tex-live] wsuipa confusion? tableaux package

1. there are two latex packages for wsuipa -- ipalmacs.sty (by knappen)
and ipa.sty (from some original by roegel and brodnik).

for reasons i don't understand, there's a separate package "ipa" for
ipa.sty (and a .fd file) while the fonts, generic macros, and
ipalmacs.sty are in the wsuipa package.

does anyone know why this is so?  or is it all back in sebastian's time
and therefore forgotten?

(since wsuipa is thoroughly obsolete, it shouldn't matter, but i bet it

2.  i noticed that the tableaux package had been withdrawn.  i went back
to the original upload (2002 -- i created the xml in 2005, without
reference the upload, it would seem), and found that its author claimed
it was lppl.  i've done some feeble translations of the upload
description, and updated the catalogue.

it's not a terribly tidy package, but i believe it should be allowed to
live in tl.
