I am OK with that, but let me attempt to dump what I think:

1) you are not bringing in *anything* copyleft, that directory
will only be for the non-restrictive stuff that we need: ICU,
Boost, etc.

2) This will all have to be registered in the NOTICE file,
but since this is transitory and not really stuff we use in
base, we should start a new section there to separate it from
the stuff we do use in the core system.
3) We should probably move some of the stuff in soltools
there too (mkdepend).
4) I know you want ucpp there too, but since that stuff is
used in idlc, I think I'd prefer it in idlc/source/preproc/
as it was before. No idea if we can use the system cpp for the
rest but that would probably make sense.

All just IMHO, I am pretty sure whatever you do is better than
what we have now :).
