Modified files:
        licenses       : license-list.html 

Log message:
        Remove a few entries:
        * Guile is LGPLed, instead of GPL+exception.
        * Accordingly, the entry for Ada has to go too.  I'm still not entirely
          sure what its license is -- when I look at the Ada source, only a few
          files in the examples/ tree seem to have any kind of exception to the
          GPL.  I will mail the maintainer to ask about this, but no matter what
          the answer is, I don't see a particular need to document it on
          license-list: it's not like we do that for Classpath, or the parts of 
          that have it, or anything else like that.  It doesn't come up often
        * The Vita Nuova license is no longer in use.  (I only noticed this by
          trawling the CVS logs looking for clues about the Ada license.  Dave
          removed this entry a while ago, and then Karl added it back because it
          was still on fsf.org.  Heh, oops.  :) )
