I changed things so that gb4e is included in collection-humanities
(where linguex is) instead of collection-latexextra.  So one will have
to go to a lot of trouble to get one package and not the other now.

Although Robin is certainly correct in principle that we should not
distribute packages without any licensing info, I don't think a couple

(many, many, many).

In any case, I see that gb4e is derived from midnight and covington
which are free, so we can conclude gb4e is (other-)free also.  (Robin, I
believe midnight should be other-free (barely), not unknown.)
