Copyright: small updates
The I binding was removed from input.conf (although it's probably not copyrightable, but still). has a bunch of authors which probably make the licensing situation a pain - but it's not integral part of the build system or the source code, so it doesn't matter for a LGPL core. I checked and cleaned up the build system in the last few commits. There was the possibility that parts of it were based on actual code of the old "configure" file, in particular with the waftools/fragments/ files (it turned out some were, some even not covered by LGPL agreements). This was checked, so I'm confident only the commit mentioned in the Copyright file holds back proper LGPL licensing of it. (And I guess I have to wait for a reply.) I checked the English translations. There used to be help_mp-en.h (or help_mp.h earlier), which was part of the source code, and which contained most terminal and GUI messages. This was done for the purpose of localization, but all localizations were dropped at one point in mplayer2 development. At this point, the message defines were moved back to the source code. (While in the years before that, they were moved from the source code to the file where applicable.) I didn't check help_mp-en.h when it was merged back. There was the possibility that someone might have changed one of the English messages (i.e. added his copyright to it), which then was copied back to the source code, without accounting for that copyright. Upon checking the history now, it seems this didn't happen for any code that we want to relicense to LGPL (in fact, it happened to some messages in the DVD code only).
