Thanks Joe for your time. If you would take a look at the rest, you may notice
that I changed almost the whole file. That's why I also changed the copyright note.
If you think I should keep the original note, I will do that.

What I did change:
- I included additional information stating that the file is based on Yann Collets
original header file (especially in matters of the function comments)

Sven
