Without substantial analysis, "blame" alone is not sufficient - it
does not show which work was original, or derivative.

(of all projects, Mercurial!) take a look at Mercurial's attempt at
relicensing last year (http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/Relicensing):
they contacted all 300+ contributors as part of the process.

Of course, we aren't talking about relicensing the whole codebase.
However, I don't think any of the contributors agreed to assign their
work to the 5 people mentioned above (eg. under a contributor licence
agreement), so just getting the approval of them is not enough; you
need to get the approval of *all* contributors to test-lib.sh.

Here's what I get with 'git shortlog t/test-lib.sh  | grep "^[A-Z]"'
