Dear Andreas and Nicolas,

I think that it would be preferrable to refrain from adding special keywords to
the License field, to guarantee that it contains only license information.  I
would therefore recommend using the Files-Excluded field.  Also, I think that
keeping all the information in a single header field will ease your development
to get popularity and support.

By the way, are there differences with the syntax of the Files field ?
