I believe you have no choice but to get the agreement of every
contributor to this code if you want to change it to BSD (which looks
like at least Matsumoto-san and Allan Stokes).

Is this file mandatory for blitz ? Also, blitz is only used in weave,
right ? I remember some discussion about putting weave into a scikit,
but I can't find it ATM; maybe I am confused with something else, though.
