Since the new documentation is based on the old documentation, it is under
the LGPL as well.  Plus, I don't think comments can be separated from
code, license-wise, so the Doxygen docs are also under LGPL.

There is some distaste for the new documentation licenses as well, in
communities such as Debian, which would be nice to avoid.
