Merging multiple sources *really* shouldn't be necessary.  And the
metadata for those sources will vary, so that likely won't save that
much space.

Perhaps we should add a few more things to common-licenses, or figure
out if our packaging metadata could be further reduced or de-duplicated.
It should be possible to package a 1kB library without several kB of
overhead.  But even if we have to pay that overhead, so be it; we have
tens of thousands of packages already, what's a few hundred more tiny
JavaScript packages as long as they're actually used?
