I didn't realise that. I had assumed that each source file *had* to have a
license declaration in it.

So if the source files do not have license declarations, we are still OK
if there is a "COPYING" (or similar) file in the tarball? What about if
there is no such file but there is an explicit license declaration on
upstream's web site?
