I do not feel like putting a license statement in each and every .cs i 
upload for patching the kernel. These problems are becoming quite boring.

There could be a clear message stating that publishing code on mantis 
implies MIT license, unless explicitely specified.

For external packages, this is different, SqueakMap has all what is 
needed to clearly state the license, squeak source too. It's a less 
boring operation than on mantis, because you do it once for the whole 
package, not for every single patch.
