It looks like lots of lines of code were "borrowed" which, IMO, means it
is still third-party and not donated.  I'm wondering if there was any way
to use their file as-is, or their file with slight modifications.  That
would make it more clear that this is mostly or entirely a third-party
work.  Then their header would be on the file with their copyright, and I
think we'd mention it in LICENSE like we did for Open-Sans font which is
also AL.
