Although it doesn't follow the Etoys pattern of adding methods directly to Player, I don't think this minor difference is important enough to fork it.

I emailed to Koji-san several days ago asking him about the license, but have not heard back.

Not sure where that leaves us, but presumably we can't/shouldn't incorporate ScratchConnect into our 5.0 release unless/until we hear from him that the license is MIT.

Perhaps someone else, preferably someone Koji-san knows personally, might have another try at contacting him.
