Is an SGA appropriate in this case?  This is not a corporate
"donation" of source code.  And it was ALv2 from the start, in the ODF
Toolkit Union, so there is no need to re-license it.

Maybe handle this as part of the IP review?  If we find any files that
are not under ALv2 or a compatible license, then we need to get an SGA
or remove that file.  Would that work?

Sounds painful... until it becomes routine.
