Thank you very much to everyone who provided me feedback and help during development and beta testing. By now there have been so many of you that I cannot possibly list you all.

The sole exception to this condition is redistribution of a standard UnZipSFX binary (including SFXWiz) as part of a self-extracting archive; that is permitted without inclusion of this license, as long as the normal SFX banner has not been removed from the binary or disabled.
