Given this approach, we'd still have COPYING as is, but we'd also have
LICENSE which I presume would contain something like this:

  Unless otherwise noted, all files in Guile are covered under the

  Files in Guile covered by other licenses:

    ./guile-readline/* -- covered under the GPL, see COPYING.
