Thanks that's nice. I've been thinking about this more. You will notice all
the 'issues' in date-time amount to code in the examples subtree and
documentation. I've been resisting cluttering example code with copyright and
licensing stuff. But now I'm thinking that this can just be tagged onto the
bottom. I suppose docs are pretty much the same.

BTW, not to open the proverbial can of worms, but I'm betting inspect isn't
looking at .xml files. And now that we have a fair number of xml files I'm
certain there are problems in there...
