If we are going to the extent of writing editor macros to hide the
licence, then it has indeed become un-read boilerplate and pointless.


That said, I think this much should be on each file. 

 * License: GPLv2 (or later)
 * Author: Rusty Russell <rusty at>

In particular it would be helpful if the 'or any later version' was more
clearly indicated.  But this is your project, not ours, and so I would
strongly defer to your best sense about how you wish to lay out your
code, and thank you greatly for working so hard to help us use it.
