I realize that this misses a certain aspect of interpreting the
legalize of licenses, which is that many believe the full text of a
license needs to accompany all source and binary files.

So then an additional aspect of this solution could be a helper that
takes a copyright.in containing license file references and replaces
that with the appropriate full text.
