One possible complication to this is that all the code in Click
currently has a copyright header assigned to Malcolm Edgar, even if
they were contributed from other comitters. So in committing code
people have explicity assigned their copyright to me.  This was a
habit I picked up from working on Tapestry.

However I don't know whether this copright statement would has legal
standing, or is in the spirity of Apache.

regards Malcolm Edgar
