You have a point there. I grepped for MIT through the copyright files and
found it 9 times (in the packages installed on my system). Not sure if all
of those are exactly the same MIT, but it looks pretty close to me (ie exim).
How common does it have to be to make it into common-licenses?
(I don't want to start a flamewar here, I just ask out of curiousity. Also,
if MIT were in common-licensenses, I wouldn't even have asked initially
about the license).
