I strongly believe that our README needs a licence header. I am under the
impression that it never had one.
It makes sense for rat-plugin to ignore binary files because they could be
encrypted or compressed or something else, and already have a license
header (false positives) or are simply impossible to add a header to
because they are machine generated.
If these files have licence headers somewhere in them, then I will withdraw
my concern over them. I felt that I performed due diligence by visually
inspecting them, running them through "strings" program, and attempting to
check for file metadata. I support removing them and somehow moving the
contents to our website.
