Re: Intent to package: olex

[#include <not.subscribed.to.these.lists.please.cc.replies.h>]

Shaleh hinted that I might want to look at the Olex license. It
does put some restriction on output - which, differently from
the "buttonware" discussion a while ago, seems legitimate to me
since Olex output is full of code written by the Olex author.
So, this is the actual LICENSE.GENERATED file:

> This license applies to the source olex generates and to both the
> LookAhead.cc and the LookAhead.h file in this package.

Is this ok for main? Should I print a warning, or even maybe add
it to the package description?
