but fog's stuff in ldaplib/... has "GNU General Public License"(sic) in it.
[just an english note: licence is a noun, and license is a verb...
the mnemonic I use is that ICE is a noun.. ... [hey whats that crazy
german dish with frozen pig trotters and saurkraut?]]

so.. heres a plan for you, michael-
	1) choose licence
	2) mail the GPL authors asking if its okay to degrade/unify their
	   code under the new licence
	3) rm the files that are unmaintained?
