I think its useful that liblicense has a broad range of licenses you can 
ask data on.  Thinks like request the license text and perhaps some 
categories (software / free / similar to CC lincense XYZ).

I don't have any use for the user *selecting* the license for a new work. 
So the current liblicense is just enough[1] for wanting to create a 
license-selection-wizard or something like that.

1) that said; I have not actually looked at liblicense, just at the things 
its suppost to be able to do ;)
