[GRASS5] LZW in Grass

Hi All

Are there any plans to replace the lzw compression algorithm in Grass with
something that is not patented?

Since Grass is a free software product, users publishing maps and graphics
and announcing they were made in Grass may risk to receive a $5000 bill
from Unisys, who owns the patent to LZW. Or am I just paranoid ...
