the principle requirements are (a) that the stuff exists on ctan, and
(b) that it's distributed under a free licence.

(a) is not true
(b) is not clear (there are no licence statements in the files)

under those circumstances, the answer has to be no.

istr we had a man from the iop give us a talk, at a uk tex users' group
meeting, ages ago.  i'm fairly sure i urged him to put the stuff on
ctan; but he obviously didn't.  so you're reaping the spin-off from the
fact that no-one ever takes me seriously; sorry.
