Unless you want to use @Copyright for a date/version field?

I would agree that the type of license is an important field--or could
become so.

Well, I actually disagree here.  I thought Mark's inclusion of license info
in his script showed a lot of foresight.  If user scripts continue to become
popular, we can expect claims of piracy and copyright to follow.  Right now,
a tip of the hat is plenty, but someone will claim patent on "//a", that's
the ball game.  :-P

So.. I think (optional) @author, @homepage, @license would be useful. 
I don't really think @copyright is needed if @author and @license is there,
right?
