Although it's ideal if every file where possible would have some
statement of copyright, in principle it's safe to assume that any file
in the distribution is covered by the licence.txt that has been
included. Unless there's significant indications otherwise, i.e. a
totally different coding style.

It would not have to be per-file if you ask me, but it must be made more
clear what's meant with the statements in debian/copyright. For example,
which subdir all these files are in could be ok, but which individual
files if there's no more compact way to tell.
