Thanks for clearing it up, but I still don't quite know what it
means with aladdin ghostscript: as long as we (debian developers)
do our job propperly, there's no chance of any vendor to run into
troubles -- but, if just one developper overlooks that one file in
his megabyte package, then there is potential danger.
It seems to me that, in such cases, Peter L Deutsch didn't intend the
vendor to pay up, but it may be worth to ask him about it.
I still haven't sent Peter the letter about this (as I did promise).
Maybe it's better if someone with "autority" ask him (Bruce)?
The copyright of aladdin ghostscript should by now be viewable with:

Use Debian/GNU Linux!
