I remember discussing before but not conclusion: Is the 3c BSD license
used here OK? So I don't forget the answer again: The 3rd clause is the
"Neither the name of $NAME nor the names of its" one, which already
appears in one or two files, so other than a new $NAME there is no
difference to the licensing. If you could include something lie that
snippet next time either in the main commit message or in an
aide-memoire after the first "---" I'd appreciate it so I don't have to
engage my brain next time.

NB: The "3rd" clause is actually numbered "4." in those existing
instances, because the are code which was relicensed from the old 4
clause dropping what is clause 3 in that context. In case anyone repeats
my grep and things we've some 4 clause BSD in there.

Speaking of which: Would someone mind doing a sweep and updating COPYING
to actually reflect all the licenses? Currently it just has a 2cBSD from
Citrix and a warning about the GPL'd components...
