	libegg is not my code, and is not covered by any (C) assignment I've
ever signed, it was built as an external library we bundled deliberately
as a separate shared library to avoid problems, before this
functionality was included into gtk+.

	The shutdownicon-unx.cxx code is in all probability owned by
Sun/Oracle, but it was indeed my work: though no credits appear anywhere
sadly. That it does not (yet) contain a shouting header saying:

 * DO NOT ALTER OR REMOVE COPYRIGHT NOTICES OR THIS FILE HEADER.
 *
 * Copyright 2000, 2010 Oracle and/or its affiliates.

	is just an omission.

	Hopefully they'll read the list of committers, and JCA signatories
before rejecting things without explicit headers: there are plenty of
files in that situation, and no doubt other people forgot to add them
around the place.

	HTH,

		Michael.
