Add license.

The MIT/X11 license seemed like a good choice - it prevents anyone from
holding us liable (in case they delete their entire repo, etc.), but
allows them to use and modify it in pretty much any way.  The Apache and
BSD 3-Clause don't let users mention our name (which seems silly for
this), and Zlib requires them to rename the project (also silly).

Fixes #23.
