Cluttering the namespace? The name isn't very generic, I'd say. A
moderately complex sed one-liner is probably all that's needed, but to
have it in a file is nice.
If it's so easy to type in, I'd have expected it in your response.

I think it's a wonderful idea to have a decss package in Debian. If
Debian cannot distribute the decss that allows Debian users to view DVD
movies (yet), then distributing this one is a good alternative, I'd say.
