    blocks that contain actual license statements.
    This change was driven by the fact that today, most people acquire and
    track Emulab and ProtoGENI sources via git.
    Before the Emulab source code was kept in git, the Flux Research Group
    at the University of Utah would roll distributions by making tar
    files.  As part of that process, the Flux Group would replace the
    license symbols in the source files with actual license statements.
    When the Flux Group moved to git, people outside of the group started
    to see the source files with the "unexpanded" symbols.  This meant
    that people acquired source files without actual license statements in
    them.  All the relevant files had Utah *copyright* statements in them,
    but without the expanded *license* state...
