I agree.  Consider that the pronouncement :).  Code included under non-
MIT licenses for any reason must have its license agreements preserved
in the files themselves.

For any MIT-licensed code from third parties, we should have an
aggregate copyright declarations file for each project included at the
top level.  (This way we don't have to copy and paste
licensing/copyright junk around when we refactor between files.)
