That's a good point.  The current directions for preparing source
distributions don't capture the LICENSE file, I think.  The current
directions don't capture anything below the component directory.  (The last
Collections release didn't have the license either.)

I agree that including the LICENSE is a good idea.

Also a good point.

Too bad the discussor(s) didn't update the build script.  :)

Hmm, I'm tempted to add the LICENSE manually, but I don't want to
contaminate the package with my targz ineptitude.  Maybe we should just put
inclusion of the LICENSE file on our post-mortem to-do list for the next
