I can't actually do this now that I think about it. What's going to have to
happen is that the person who wrote the code in the first place will need to
submit a patch to those files that they consider theirs that replaces the
current license with this one, with their name put into the copyright line.

I'm not going to change the license and copyright on code that
clearly isn't mine and I've got no idea who did what. For the NCSA
code, either it stays in the public domain and any Apache patches
go into the public domain with it, or Rob McCool steps forward and
claims copyright on the bits he wrote, or someone claims them as
derivative works and places a copyright on it.
