Thanks (and for voting too!). Seems that I'm not only one who's been
pondering about this. With 17 Maven sub-modules of Shiro seems that
we'd need 17 copies of the license files scattered around our source

release, but let's leave that for another thread. I'm watching the
issue and perhaps I'll restore the LICENSE file on top of the tree.
