Details

People keep putting stuff in other-licenses when it's non-MPL. That is not what other-licenses was created for; it's for code under licenses incompatible with the MPL, which is a much smaller amount of code. 

Putting stuff there unnecessarily makes people's lives and builds more complicated. We should add a README so no-one puts stuff there under a mistaken sense of obligation.
