That reminds me:  I often want to accept licences on a per-package
basis, not on a per-licence-class basis.  For example,
instead of "ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES+= fee-based-commercial-use"
I want to be able to say:

# I don't intend to make any commercial use of LAME.
ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES.lame=	fee-based-commercial-use

I have personal patches that allow this, but I haven't got around
to submitting them as a PR.
