Subject: Copyright notices don't play well with binary distributions
The distribution contains copyright statements in the README and in ReadKey.xs. The latter says: Copyright (C) 1994,1995,1996,1997 Kenneth Albanowski. Unlimited distribution and/or modification is allowed as long as this copyright notice remains intact. and the former is similar. This creates a problem for precompiled distributions of perl that include TermReadKey, because neither copyright notice is included. Can the copyright statement be moved to ReadKey.pm instead?
Hi, I've been getting a few questions on the licensing recently so I am going to standardize the notices across all of the files so there isn't any ambiguity - I don't think I have any other stuff pending to release so I will probably do one before the end of the year with just the licensing sorted out and a note in the README regarding building it on platforms where there is a precompiled perl. I'll let you know.

The copyright statement is still missing in 2.30. -- Olivier Mengué - http://perlresume.org/DOLMEN

I am going to make a release soon that will clarify this. Really.
