First off let me say that I meant no offense by removing the author
from the header files, I was told that authors belonged in the cpp
file and not the headers. The authors names are listed in the
corresponding cpp files

Secondly, as far as the MIT license goes, it is legal to strip off
everything except the copyright notice and MIT license itself.

So, is there a consensus here, should authors names be repeated in the
header files or not?
