Just for the record, though, what I'm trying to say is that adding a
license to an AUR package is *non-trivial*.  What about dual licensed
packages? Is it 'GPL' or 'GPL2' or 'GPLv2' ? Where do I find that
info? What about custom licenses.  What if it has 3 custom licenses.
What if it has a common(ish) license that's just not there yet, do I
add that as a custom license or not?
It's complex.  It's not as simple as just adding a line to the
PKGBUILD.  And if we force people to add "license=unknown" then we're
not really forcing much except some extra typing.
