We have gone through this before, Peter Samuelson regularly brings
this up because Debian has the same issue. So I suspect the files
that are left without a license have mostly done so because we cannot
assign one. It looks like a couple in your list might be new files
where a license was overlooked and could be updated.
Why don't we boot these files from trunk and our tarballs? We could
create a new top-level folder for them or just get rid of them
