its licence isn't relevant. movie15 is lppl, but has been removed from
the uk tex faq is released pd, but with the code you wrote for me that
produces popups in the pdf version of the faq, istm that the faq should
not be in tex live.
likewise scott pakin's (lppl) visualfaq, i think ... can't check from
here with the pdf viewers i have.
