sure.  however, a standard, uncluttered, statement of licence would
enable us to get the licence statement right.  the latest iteration
specified lppl 1.3b and didn't give the option of "any later version".
1.3c is noticeably different from 1.3b, and the changes were needed to
get it accepted as a free licence.

one might guess that someone who doesn't use the recommended wording,
also wants to wriggle out of some licence conditions.

and as for the clutter...

you're wrong (the system isn't anywhere we can [easily] mirror it, i
believe).  however, i don't believe we're at liberty to reveal who it is
does the job.
