It's a good idea, but unfortunately because we are using one GPL
module[1] we can't use that flag because then gnulib-tool would refuse
to run.

It's a bit strange that this flag controls two different things:
controlling whether to import the module according to the license, AND
adding a header to the imported source file.

Rich.

[1] across the whole package, not in the library.
