SIOX license backported in r10027
Scour license backported in r10028

I am going to ping the devel list to see if anyone has anything else they would like to see in 0.48.5 saying the cutoff to respond is a week from Sunday. If no one has any changes prior to the cutoff, we can move forward with a release for it.

Scour is now dual-licensed under Apache 2 and GPL 2:

I've also updated the license of the files in our tree.  Josh, could you
also cherrypick this change to the 0.48.5 tree?

@Jan, with this I believe the licensing issues you've raised are now
squared away; please let us know if we've missed anything.
