I don't think you have to start with *all* licenses (that would indeed be a
very long list). Simply starting with some of the most popular ones you
could capture a major part of the collection. Licenses like
* {{PD-old}}
* {{PD-Art-YorckProject}}
* {{PD Art}}
* {{self2|GFDL|cc-by-2.5}}
* {{self2|GFDL|cc-by-sa-2.5,2.0,1.0}}
* {{PD-self}}
Are used by many pictures throughout the whole project. If you could only
match these you could already display the license under a lot of the images.

And for more licenses you could take one of the main license categories such
And extract all categories from there and use it for the 'license array'.

However easy it might seem, i'm not sure if this will work out. As i said
before, i'm not a programmer :)
