Yes, my question wasn't really is it was acceptable or not, as it
seemed pretty clear that it was. It's just not listed in the wiki
"Licensing" page, and now that we're trying to stick to clearly defined
strings for the package License field, I just don't know what to put
there.

My guess is that we'll need to add a "WTFPL" line :-/
