Thank you very much for the time spent on this.  Shall I submit an appropriate patch to the Emas list, to do this for that one existing flymake example, or shall I leave that to y'all?

The solution I've come up with for code examples that are useful to
copy into programs is to put a copy of the code example in a code
source file, which would be released under a free license for software.

For a large and specialized example, put it under the GPL.
For a smaller example (but long enough to matter for copyright),
you can use CC0.
