[tex-live] lamsarrow.sty non-free?

Dear all,

the package pb-diagram seems to be under GPL, at least that is what the
file COPYING states (texmf-dist/doc/latex/pb-diagram/).

But it ships a copy/changed version of lamsarrow.sty which starts with

% lamsarrow.sty: fancy arrows using lams fonts
% Author: extracted from Michael Spivak's LamS-TeX by Paul Burchard
% Version Number: 4.1
% Version Date: 24 Jan 1997
%--------------------- LamS-TeX copyright -------------------------
% COPYRIGHT (C) 1989, 1990, 1991 by the Texplorators Corporation,
% 1572 West Gray #377, Houston, TX 77019-4948 (ALL RIGHTS RESERVED)

I guess we should remove that lamsarrow.sty. Or the whole package


Best wishes
