COPYING: Collapse 'canonical license' into one statement

For a few of us, the license statement is identical, and the only variant is
the copyright.  For these, aggregate the copyrights, and only list the license
once.  Put this at the top, and note that this is more or less our agreed
canonical license.

The following is the 'standard copyright' agreed upon by most contributors,
and is currently the canonical license, though a modification is currently
under discussion. Copyright holders of new code should use this license
statement where possible, and append their name to this list. Please sort
by surname for people, and by the full name for other entities (e.g.
Juliusz Chroboczek sorts before Intel Corporation sorts before Daniel
Stone).
