OK, thanks.

Yes but the AIFFs and the PNGs have the exact same status as the other
files. "common/build/Help/*" matches those PNGs, and correctly
identifies the authors and license; "*" matches the two AIFF files
similarly. There's no need for extra rules for these.

Actually, for "*" the listing of "Copyright: 2002-2003, James
McCartney" is out of date. I would change it to "Copyright: 2002-2011,
James McCartney and others" - that OK? There are many dozens of code
contributors so I hope "others" is not too weird.
