Good to know.

Some of the documentation's text's being originally from nano's GPLed
sources was still a concern, given the GFDL's incompatibility with the
GPL, which is why things worked out this way.  Thanks anyway, though.

Don't worry; they will be when I'm done.

True.  It's just that, in the current version, there's this (and the
second paragraph appears to be a translation of the first, if I'm
reading the cognates properly):

.\" This is free documentation, see the latest version of the GNU
.\" General Public License for copying conditions.  There is NO
.\" warranty.
.\" Ce document est libre. Reportez-vous à la dernière version de la
.\" licence publique générale GNU (GNU GPL) pour connaître ses
.\" conditions d'utilisation. Ce document est distribué sans
.\" AUCUNE garantie.

I can replace the English part, of course, but not the French part.  And appears to only contain
translations of the full licenses, not just the blurb I'm dealing
