OK, I added a modules/README. But why do you put "in any medium" after
the "are permitted"? "in any medium" obviously pertains to
"Copying and distribution", which makes it sound as if "without royalty"
pertains to "Copying and distribution" as well - and this would be a non-free
license. I would prefer to write

  Copying and distribution of this file, with or without modification,
  in any medium, are permitted without royalty provided the copyright
