For what it's worth, I've been making the proposed change (to use a local
copy of LICENSE.txt instead of "../LICENSE") in the Commons packages that
I deal with.  It makes the process of checking out and building individual
packages much easier, at the (small enough to not matter, IMHO) cost of
having to update the copyright year in one extra file per package.
