yeah, I think there is no need for that patch in 0.8.8.
I removed it from git a while ago after I imported the 0.8.8 sources.

what a mess! the source files are definitly MIT, I'm pretty sure I asked
upstream about the COPYING file long time ago, I'll see if I can find
that discussion again, or even ask him again.
Although I'm quite sure our conversation ended up with him saying the
software is indeed MIT licensed.
