Academic Free License questions

I'm sure these are FAQs but I have a couple of questions about using
the AFL.

1. Is the AFL generally considered GPL-compatible as the X license is?
   i.e. if I release a library under the AFL, can GPL applications use
   it? Or would I need to dual license under GPL also?

2. What notice should be placed in each individual source
   file? The entire AFL is quite long to put there... 
   the GPL comes with a suggestion for "how to apply this 
   license to your code"

Thanks for any help.
