Ah, I didn't see that.

Would you mind moving it to the top of the file, as is common with these 
notices?  I'd remove the one in the Linux man-pages repo if you do that, which 
would mean less maintenance for me (I could also remove it and keep the one at 
the bottom, but it's likely to not be found as easily).
