If its ASL, it requires a NOTICE, is my understanding.  Some of these are admittedly redundant/overkill
since we have a ton of ASF code in here, but I'd like to keep a 1-1 for every jar, that way
we know what every JAR is and whether it requires one (see for instance all the commons jars).
 From that, we can then make a decision about what belongs in the official LICENSE and NOTICE
files.   Also, the dependency checker code just does 1-1 checks on each jar, so if it is ASL
it expects a NOTICE to be alongside it.

As for auto-generating, I think we will be able to de-dup before generating so it shouldn't
be a problem.  I haven't written any code to auto-gen it yet, so it is still a manual process.
