Thank you for addressing this so quickly; I very much appreciate it!

Perhaps it's good to have a LICENSING file in the repository's root, where licenses are mentioned per directory, and where authors can declare their own statements ("I hereby disclaim copyright", "My contributions are under MIT license").

Licensing is important for more than just the src/ tree. I've contributed documentation and tests, both of which I think should be in the public domain, or MIT domain. A centralized administration of licensing information would allow me to pre-emptively re/unlicense my contributions to everything.

And in the future, reading such a file is much easier than browsing through blog comments, IRC logs, and use.perl journals.
