That's cerainly not the case.  The IDE for GNUstep apps is Project
Center (and Project Manager); upstream uses the former, I think, but
TTBOMK both don't add license headers.  I anticipate that what
happened is that he simply copied the headers from a library under
LGPL and substituted what was necessary in the beginning, without
reading carefully the rest.

Also, some files, which were clearly written by him, contain (C) FSF
in the headers.  Either he wanted to assign copyright to the FSF for
the whole app and framework, or it is another kill/yank mistake.
