 It would be nice if Kent changed the license to GPL, but I don't want to require that all programs distributed in the tarball be GPL'd. I'm inclined to just change the README to indicate that the main program is GPL'd, but some programs in the archive and contrib directories have different licenses. Why would we need to do more than that?
