 is findind it difficult to deal with multiple licenses.  Any solution
 should cover Hackage not just GHC.

 There are patches floating about to automate the aggregation of license
 files for big stacks of packages. It would not solve the problem of the
 aggregate license being big, but at least it would be automatic. This
 aspect of the patches I think is not blocking on the other aspect which
 needed reworking (that handled license compatibility checking).
