this is a one-liner, e.g.:

SPDX-License-Identifier: GPL-2.0

or

/* SPDX-License-Identifier: GPL-2.0 */

Not quite apparent how we represent "free to use / public domain" - probably CC0. There is also a WTFPL for sponge's stuff.

The exact specification of how to use SPDX-License-Identifier is given here. Note that it needs to be exact, so we need to specify all alternative or concurrent licenses, where they exist.
