IANAL, but if I was suing someone I'd expect any lawyer I paid to dig
through the history and dig up the names of anyone that even touch one

I think the main thing to worry about is that some people get touchy
about "credit" and want their name up in lights.  I personally just
want my name to show up in "git log" or "git blame" and I'm fine.

I'll work on a pull request sometime this week.  Is GPLv2 or later the
correct license?
