Tcllib has three licenses:

tcllib/license.terms: BSD-style, ok.
BSD-style, ok.

tcllib/modules/comm/comm.LICENSE: Seems BSD-ish,
paragraphs 2 and 5 seem problematic.

Is there something that can be done to clean this up?

Stuart, thanks for reminder on this. We had a discussion on 
tcllib-devel about this around end of May, beginning of June 
this year, but it died off when I got distracted. I have now 
restarted the discussion on tcllib-devel. When it concludes I 
will post a summary here. For taking part iin the discussion 
please subscribe to tcllib-devel. The subject of the past and 
now discussion is 'discrepancy in original intent and current 
status wrt licensing'.

A partial thread is at
