I've been wondering the same thing.  I run rexxc on every program prior to going into production and following any change (no matter how minor) and I have to see this everytime.

Subject: [Oorexx-devel] A question on license referrals...

Hi there,

just curious: would it be sufficient to include in (Rexx) programs the following line to make it clear the license that applies to it?
license:          CPL 1.0 (Common Public License v1.0, see accompanying file "CPLv1.0.txt")
This way one could fogo that boring copy-block at the beginning of the programs.

Regards,

---rony
