You're right in that we shouldn't give any guarantees. But I think
it's very well possible to both be as complete as possible (I _think_
that my review caught all GPL dependencies) and at the same time put
the final burden on the concerned user. The last paragraph of LICENSE
makes this perfectly clear.
