I think no, because either we can relicense all of OCA or not. If we
can't, we'll have to look through all commits anyways. But...

...if we put a marker on modules (manifest key or a new 'license') to
taint them, this will be less painful. I'd only fear a proliferation of
such modules, but if we can keep them to very specific cases, that's
workable I guess.
Or put the marker on the commits themselves, then we can filter them out
automatically if necessary and rewrite the missing ones.

That would be optimal of course. Or maybe (because the CLA is very
broad) establish a process to waive copyright for specific pieces of
code as in this case to the OCA?
