Isn't that crazy?  When you write your code trying to being agnostic
about the way it's going to be compiled -- as an advanced programmer
would might eventually try to do -- you can attach any copyright notice
you want; the way it's being compiled will decide about the copyright!!?

Hey, this opens to loop hole for inclusion: include it in object form as
an dynamically linked .so!
