OK, I adjusted COPYING. I also added a little more detailed
information to README.

I guess the current dviout binary is up-to-date enough, as its sources
are unchanged. Those I've changed are some accompanying tiny
utilities, which are not so essential for the main program dviout.exe as
a DVI previewer. So, there should be no need for building/uploading
the whole package.

That said, of course, dviout-util is a subset of the dviout package,
so I will keep sync the dviout svn with dviout-util.
I may rebuild/update the whole package when it is really needed.

I will commit to TeX Live svn after a few more tests.

Best regards,
