:) Fontana has been known to jest.
Still, my view is that it's tough to compliance about this; the
choosealicense.com site says "patches welcome", so we should offer them.

John, have you considered offering text from your license chooser as a
patch to chosealicense.com? I think it'd be good to test their claim
that they want contribution, and you seem the right person to do it,
since you've worked on this problem before.
