missing for starters, but there's other stuff)

Upgrading idpl 1.0 license to 2.0 so we can be gpl compatible

Just noticed Mozilla license v1.1 http://opensource.org/licenses/MPL-1.1 was upgraded to v 2.0 maybe is time for firebird to do so for all new code (This license has been superseded by the Mozilla Public License 2.0; please use the MPL 2.0 instead of 1.1.)
It should be easy doable for new code
