Adding MIT License to Common Licenses

The current 'permissive' license in common-licenses is BSD. It has some
issues and while quite common, is not, I think an ideal permissive license to
use when one is looking for a license in that category. The  MIT license
is reasonably common and, IMO, a better choice for new projects.
I would like to add it, and could just do so, but thought it deserved some
discussion first. The text I would add can be found at  opensource.org.
I'm specifically doing this now because of some helper scripts I want to get
added to the Postfix package that I'd prefer to license MIT and Lamont would
prefer something in common-licenses. This seemed like the approach that
would be helpful to the most people.
