IF multiple license are allowed for poms, soon or later you will need a tool
to check which pom you can use in your context.

But would it be really a problem to have a policy saying that all poms in
the repos are apache licensed (once solved the problem of all the existing
poms that have an unknown license, of curse).
I think that such policy would simplify a lot of things, and would just be a
minor limitation for very few user.
