[R] License for KernSmooth?

According to the CRAN contributed packages page, the license for "KernSmooth" is
*not* GPL. It is listed as "License: Unlimited distribution (from Dr Wand)."
Are there any restrictions on this of any kind? Is there some written license
document similar to the GPL license? The reason I'm asking is that the legal
beagles in the company I work for are extremely paranoid about this sort of
thing, for their own special and wonderful reasons. There is no licensing
information in the tarball, either. There are certain situations where I might
not be able to use "KernSmooth" as a result. "sm" *is* GPL, fortunately, so
there aren't any restrictions placed on me by the aforementioned beagles. But
IIRC "sm" doesn't do derivatives and "KernSmooth" does.
