In README.License:
        As a U.S. government publication, so to speak, NIST Net is not
        copyrighted.  You can do whatever you want with it, including
        employing its code in whole or in part in any other package
        or product.  You need not credit me or NIST (though not doing
        so would be a bit rude).

That wouldn't be hard, maybe even the ability to do correlated distributions.
