OK. I think you're presenting a sample of how the tool would work,
right? Here's what I think:

This can help, if used to find inconsistencies in copyright
headers. Otherwise this doesn't need to be shown IMHO.

Optional I think.

Nice. There's also an inconsistency between the license in COPYING
(v3) and in the headers (v2).

Yes, that's the new FSF address (though the new GPLv3 notice doesn't
include any address at all, only the web site).

This comes from the COPYING file. Is it necessary to note it?

Can you start work on the tool now?

It would also be good to try to write a user-oriented answer for
project 'xannoy'.  The tool could produce such output.

Hear from you soon,
