As I recall, Dirk was the one who suggested licenses next to the jar
files -- this is what all the other XML projects are doing.

FOP did not resolve their license issue with Jimi -- they decided to put
a "go here and download Jimi from Sun" readme file in.

Also, you guys still have an issue with Jisp, because the license only
covers source distribution, not binary -- kind of like djb's Qmail
license.
