Legal Poo: Crapping Out License Files

Generating a license file is boring. Finding all the little mentions of "the author" and the copyright date can be obnoxious. Shouldn't there be a way to do that automatically?

gem install legal-poo
legal-poo fdosl md "Your Name" "2012" >
    # or, if you like plaintext better
legal-poo fdosl txt "Your Name" "2012" > COPYING

Now wasn't that easy?
