In the past this was solved by:

->	All the people in the group all sign the same software grant
	and thus together hand over the code. (And assuming that all
	authors are still alive and willing to do so).

Logistically this is a bit of a pain; so what was done in the past is
simply to have each person sign his 'own' (but identical) version of the
softwate grant (with the other people listed as well - but with a blank
behind their name) - and then filing the umpteen copies together which are
all idnetical expect that they have a different dotted line signed.
