My instinct is to remove the licensing and authorship information from the preamble and leave the docstring only with information functionally relevant to the module, while leaving licensing and authorship information in a comment (above? below?).
The end effect would be that using e.g. `help(qapi.parser)` in the interactive Python shell would not show licensing or copyright for the module, but it would still be visible in the source file, as always.
Is this in bad taste? Do we have strong feelings about authorship and licensing being visible in help output and generated documentation?
