"A license or a reference to the license", I meant.
After all the files under [L]GPL don't have the full text of the [L]GPL, they only refer to it.
Surely we can do the same for files under the BSD license, no?

Would someone really use the name of a cmake-module contributor to 
endorse or promote code that it compiles? Doesn't make sense to me.
"Microsoft Office, with contributions from Alex Neundorf in a file that
is used to compile our source code"... !?
