Update pythia and copyrights

Dear Christophe,

The license issue has been discussed in MCnet, and we have agreed to
update our GUIDELINES to make it clear that GPL v2 or later is
acceptable. I have changed accordingly in those headers where GLP is
mentioned. Pythia version 8.235 with these changes should go live
about two weeks from now, by Easter. So then you could include it
with Delphes with a good conscience.

All the best, Torbjörn

69FastJet is released under the terms of the GNU General Public License
70v2 (GPLv2). FastJet includes a significant body of third-party code,
71for example for third party plugin algorithms and for computational
72geometry methods. These too are usually released under the GPL or
73permissive licenses.
74
75*/NOTICE: Several files are part of FastJet and released with the following mention,
76thus explicitly allowing to use a later version than version 2 of the GNU GPL license:
77
78//  FastJet is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
79//  it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
80//  the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
81//  (at your option) any later version.
82//
83//  The algorithms that underlie FastJet have required considerable
84//  development. They are described in the original FastJet paper,
85//  hep-ph/0512210 and in the manual, arXiv:1111.6097. If you use
86//  FastJet as part of work towards a scientific publication, please
