That winds up having a lot of weird caveats -- not the least of which
being things like cdrecord, which is full of additional restrictions
(thus invalidating *something*, though it's not quite clear what.)
Basically, an automatic tool is ok for finding potential problems with
the License: line, but not very good for choosing it to start with.
