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.

Great, thanks.  I'm happy to leave it out.  I probably should add a
few more useful comments to help indicate what the code does. :-)
