For many free software projects, such notices IN THE NORMAL EXECUTION
of the binary would be prohibitive due to the number of people making
changes.  Just look at the number of names in the contributers or
change log files for e.g. Emacs or GCC.

If you really feel you need such a requirement, I don't believe you
are ready to set your software free.
