for the GSoC task "VPM-B/BE"

here is a VPM-B in C and python:

the source code license looks to me like the 2-clause (simplified)
BSD, which is GPL2 compatible:

it does have the:
2. Redistributions in binary form must reproduce the above copyright notice,
   this list of conditions and the following disclaimer in the documentation
   and/or other materials provided with the distribution.

so we can technically fork it (e.g. remove the JSON code that it uses)
or convince the author via a simple email to release a GPL2d version
for us.
the idea would be to remove the FORTRAN prereq.
