The NOTICE file is the absolutely worst place for this as it’s an
append-only must-not-be-removed requirement of the Apache 2 licence
which I always found questionable in the first place… if it’s only
used for legal notices that must stick with the code already anyway
it may be tolerable, but putting anything else in there is IMHO not
different from CC’s ND clause, or GFDL’s invariant sections.

gerechnet, darum bin ich blutverschmiert… wer konnte ahnen, daß SIE so
reagier’n… gestern Nacht ist mein IRC-Netzwerk explodiert~~~
