We've never enforced that every last file contain licensing information --
particularly the documentation and Jamfiles. By my eye this is the majority
of the problems.

I'm much more worried about the tabs and file lengths. I believe 31 chars is
the maximum allowed on CD-ROMs and MAC platforms. And, of course, tabs are

So if we wanted to filter down the report I suggest we throw out all the
licensing issues...

BTW: I've already checked in fixes for the date_time long filenames and files
with tabs...
