Thanks for pointing that out. They are welcome to use whatever

That section of the FAQ is not actually completely relevant in this
case. It refers to producing IPFs. If you want to write sector images,
then there is of course no real need to create IPFs anyway in this
case I guess.
Our IPF creation software is a commercial product, and helps fund our
preservation activity. Now that the IPF library has been open source,
there isn't anything stopping somebody creating something similar of
course, so that FAQ is out of date too.
