SPDX license identifiers are becoming something of a de facto standard, being used e.g. in Linux kernel source code. Here is the full list of them: <>.

Would it be possible to update the ad hoc license identifiers at <> and in .egg files to use the SPDX ones? This would make it easier to tell the difference between e.g. the various flavors of the BSD license, and could help automated tools figure out licensing in the future.

In addition to single license identifiers, SPDX can also do license expressions by combining license identifiers using boolean operators.
