PSF-2 license
 
gentoo-x86/licenses contains the following licenses:
PSF-2.2
PSF-2.3
PSF-2.4
PYTHON

PSF-2.2, PSF-2.3 and PSF-2.4 contain some versions of Python Software Foundation License Version 2,
which differ only in versions of Python, copyright years etc. They also contain some history of
Python and licenses for Python 2.0 and older versions.

PYTHON contains only some history of Python and licenses for Python 2.0 and older versions.

I suggest that PSF-2 file is introduced, which will contain only Python Software Foundation
License Version 2 with "<YEARS>" instead of some specific years and will (slowly) replace
PSF-2.2, PSF-2.3, PSF-2.4 and PYTHON in values of LICENSE in ebuilds.

I'm attaching suggested PSF-2 file based on LICENSE file from default branch of Python upstream
repository.
