[Rd] license

R-devel now gives a warning for a non-standard license (this may have happened for a while).

In Rgraphviz we include the Graphviz source code, which is under Eclipse. But the rest of the R package is under Artistic-2.0 or at least contains code from past contributors which were licensed under Artistic-2.0.

The standard licenses does not really give an option for this situation, apart from using 'file LICENSE' (with details on this).

However, this situation - including an external piece of software - seems to me to be increasingly common. It may be worthwhile to have the possibility of specifying this in a more machine readable way. But it may also be too complicated. I just wanted to bring attention to the issue.
