Why is it a problem? It's only a problem if you link them together
afaik. The plugins that this project produces are all separate
binaries, each under its own license.

I think we should just list the license for each included plugin. I'm a
bit against making separate packages - it would be a pain to maintain
and the plugins don't take up much disk space.
