If you don't have any ambitions of eventually getting the code into
Postgres contrib or core, then you can pretty much add any copyright
notice or terms you like.  The wiki text Marti is quoting is only meant
to cover code that is submitted for inclusion in Postgres.

We typically do that even in new files, on the grounds that there is
almost always a certain amount of copying-and-pasting involved in a new
file, and so some part of it could be traced to UCB if you tried hard
enough.  In any event, if we were to get really anal about it, we'd be
trying to have the exact same copyright notice in every single file,
and that one-size-fits-all version would definitely have to credit UCB.
