I'm embarrassed enough at participating in license proliferation, to add
another name too. :-p

However, this is basically a heavily modified three-clause BSD license[1],
so an ad-hoc term for it might be "zero-clause BSD without paranoid
warantee disclaimer".

Its warantee disclaimer is indeed weak. I don't know that I would
want to use this on any software that could cause trouble if it broke.
The files it was attached to are mostly templates that users go in and
edit, and some documentation.
