Two errors here:

  * I didn't include the time of checking each file, which you should be doing
    anyway. No doubt this can take a long time sometimes. I was only talking
    about the additional work of noting each license down.

  * I have made it perfectly clear that noting copyright holders was not
    something I was talking about. Please do not mangle my position like this.
