Ah, this was an incorrect assumption on my part; I thought that
declaring a module license for built-in code might trigger a warning
during build. I'll remove the #ifdef MODULE around licenses in v3 (v2 has
already gone out as I mistakenly initially sent the wrong version of the
patches). I've verified that removing it triggers no warnings.

Thanks to you and Randy for spotting this!
