Thanks for the feedback, Dmitrijs. I'm actually taking my cues from jQuery
which is dual licensed MIT/GPL and merely says:
> * http://jquery.com/
> * Copyright 2010, John Resig

> * http://jquery.org/license
However, I just added the MIT license block in addition to the GPL and MIT
license URLs. Good that you thought of those without Internet access.
More on why dual licensing is a good idea:
