Subject: Strictness

In plenty of projects I have encountered, the "gnu" strictness is too
strict, but also, the "foreign" strictness is too little sometimes.

Thus I suggest a new strictness, somewhere in between gnu and foreign,
lets call it "relaxed", it's simlar to 'gnu', but only following files
are required:
'INSTALL', 'AUTHORS' and 'README', plus one of 'COPYING.LIB',

The reason for this is:
ChangeLog: often mostly a duplicate of svn/cvs logs, seldom really used
NEWS: Often projects uses an other mean of media for news.
LICENSE: some projects calls the license as LICENSE instead of COPYING
