Thanks for your comments !
Yes you're right, I didn't put any license, but I will very likely put it with
an unrestrictive license, not sure of which one yet (BSD, zlib, LGPL, etc...).
And I should make a real project page for it if some people start using it or
contributing, that would look more serious.
