Ideally we would like to have correct headers for all files, so if
you want to help investigate the origin (repo logs etc) of the files
you used that would be great.

Another possibility is that the files in question are trivial enough
to not actually need license headers? (Though I think we want them
anyway to err on the side of caution.)
