Ian Piumarta would add stuff that is at the front of e.g.
platforms/unix/vm/aio.c, but Andreas Raab wouldn't. We have a LICENSE file,
so there's no need for verbiage in each source file.  I would happily see
the verbiage gone from the unix files; LICENSE cuts down on duplication and
incidental.   source.squeak.org, home of the VMMaker packages, explicitly
says code therein is under the MIT license. If there is a place other than
the LICENSE file where the repository can hold licencing info I'd like to
see it there also.

best, Eliot
