Please license the code in the repository appropriately. Preferably
the same license as you used for the other parts, unless there is a
_very_ good reason to chose something else. The software used to
generate this also needs to be published under an acceptable license.

src/lib/utils/stringbuffer.c and src/lib/internal.{c,h} are also in
need of license headers.

Hmm. ora.{h,c} and layers.{h,c} seems like a good starting point.
