I'll do that...I did discover that a couple of packages (e.g.
tango-icon-theme) do use an individual copy of the CC license.

The thing is, there are several versions of this license and each with
their own version numbers (2.0, 2.5, etc.) so I can see it being a
potential headache.  At the same time it's use is becoming mainstream
so it might be worthwhile.

Anyone else have any thoughts on this?
