Vim runtime files

Vim uses a dual-license for the distribution, see ":help license" in Vim

For distributors it's the simplest if this license applies to all the
files, including the runtime files.

These files are currently marked as using GPL:

Since these files are always distributed in source using the GPL does
not have an essential advantage over the Vim license.  A modified
version would always have to be distributed in source form anyway.

Can we please change these files to use the Vim license?
If not I will remove them and we'll have to wait for a new version to
show up.
