I disagree here; I think they need to be forced to pick a license. If
they don't, the default is "All Rights Reserved" (which is very
different from "unknown") until they come up with something.  I think
that this is how the law works, and so it's how Cabal works.  I also
don't think we should advertise libraries that users don't have any
rights to :)
