I started the forensic analysis to figure out what actual code Bruce was
demanding these notices on. When I found out how little he actually did
in the first place (and that essentially none of it had survived into the
modern version anyway), I got kind of annoyed. (The initial objective
actually wasn't to remove his code, but it's hard to remove his code from
the project when he hasn't _got_ any.)
I find it odd that this is considered newsworthy...
