[Numpy-discussion] License review, cont.

Now that I have removed all GPL/LGPL code from scipy, I wanted to
double check on the licenses of some NumPy code.  In particular,

1.  FreeBSD license:
http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/numpy/browser/trunk/numpy/core/include/numpy/fenv/fenv.c
http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/numpy/browser/trunk/numpy/core/include/numpy/fenv/fenv.h

2.  Python license:
SafeEval class in
http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/numpy/browser/trunk/numpy/lib/utils.py

Is there any need to look into getting the authors to re-license their
code?  The license are pretty liberal (and both look like they are
compatible with the revised BSD license), but I thought I'd ask
anyway.

Should we note the additional licenses in:
http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/numpy/browser/trunk/LICENSE.txt

I was imagining something like:
http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/scipy/browser/trunk/scipy/weave/LICENSE.txt

Thanks,
