I read the same thing somewhere also. To me you are saying you used it as a
base and went from there. A ton of high quality software out there says the
same thing.
What you can do is add a comment in the script somewhere and say its based
on this other program. That way you are being upright about it.
If you changed it approximately fifty percent I'd say you don't have
anything to worry about.
My two cents.
