If you read the terms of the other licenses, you will see that Pd- 
extended is complying with them.  Their license files are intact and  
included.  If not, its a bug, and that should be added to the bug  
tracker.  For example, the New BSD license does not require that I  
post that license info everywhere (the original one did).
