This reminded me why i hate posting patches instead of directly
Fixing author attribution, one asks for help to get the attribution
right, to comply to LGPL and all that and what one gets is a
link to a philosophical text. with a bunch of vague "feel free not
to attribute me" mails :)
Iam certain the result that i pushed contains mistakes
Please dont hesitate to push fixes for them or adjust things
where i missed something. I just wanted to fix this issue ASAP and
not leave some author attribution out while its being discussed for
ages. So yes flame me on gitlog ...
