This patch will seem more intimidating than it really is since it modifies the copyright headers in every source file. So don't panic when you realize how big it is

As an aside, in accordance with the newly relicensed IMC2 AntiFreeze MD-1 code, I have decided to once more integrate IMC2 support direcly into the codebase. The LGPL license legally allows distribution of code licensed under it with other code that carries additional restrictions, such as the Diku license and it's restrictions on profit.

Let me make this perfectly clear now though: This does *NOT* mean you are allowed to charge for the use of AFKMud just because this code is included. All restrictions imposed by the Diku, Merc, Smaug, and AFKMud licenses still apply to the use of the codebase.

Also, this won't be patched in. The main distribution contains the code already installed an enabled. One need only configure it much like the I3 code. If you want AntiFreeze for AFKMud, grab it from the download pages and install it.
