We can't use this particular tool because it includes a tracking bug.
However, I like the idea of automatically providing CC-BY-SA attribution. I
think we should hold a projects-wide vote on this, probably it would go over
well. Another area to consider automatic attribution is within EXIF data so
that images are automagically attributed. Some people might find that too
easy though, and I'm not sure if it's within the CC-BY-SA license. Can the
attribution be embedded within the image that is being embedded, or must it
be in the content that embeds the media? It seems that EXIF embedded
attribution for images ensures that the license gets propagated.

Basically, if you cut'n'paste text, it appends a CC credit line to the

Worth using for our stuff? A bit obnoxious? What do you think?
