I lost track of the discussion, but it’d be sad if simple packages like
this were stuck in review forever.  :-)

In general, for simple additions like this, consider yourself entitled
to push after some time has passed, as noted in ‘HACKING’.

Please mention in a comment above what this license list means: is it at
the user’s choice, a mixture of all, etc.  Note that ‘bsd-style’ is a
procedure, and is deprecated (‘guix lint’ should warn.)

Otherwise LGTM, thanks!
