The currently committed john-1.7.9-jumbo-7-licensing.txt correctly
reflects 1.7.9-jumbo-7 and it has this version right in the filename, so
it would be inappropriate to edit it to reflect the current situation
instead.  (That's a job for another file.)  However, we may in fact add
a general warning/disclaimer to it saying that it only pertains to
version 1.7.9-jumbo-7 and that some files have been re-licensed since
1.7.9-jumbo-7, including some under more restrictive terms.  Perhaps we
should do that.
