	I think this is a good idea. I did a similar thing for previous Spoon 
releases. I think as long as our trivial derived-from-BSD-or-MIT Squeak 
license is compatible with the license each copyright holder wants to 
use, then we're good. (And hopefully the total number of licenses 
involved is very small, say two. :)
