Cannot KDE (the project or the eV) make a rule that:
1) all (code) files inside the KDE repository are under GPL (LGPL for 
libraries) unless otherwise stated
2) committed code must be under a GPL/LGPL compatible licence.

I have no idea if 1) would be legal or not (certainly not for already 
committed files), but would make sense to clear this mess a little.
