It does look good. However, the inclusion of Apple fonts in Squeak (which
are not DFSG-free) has long been a sore spot so far as including Squeak in
Debian is concerned. It puts squeak squarely in non-free. As such, it
cannot be included in Debian Jr. even if it is packaged.
I thought, from my review of Squeak mailing list archives, that some time
ago the Squeak developers agreed in principle that the Apple fonts should be
replaced with free alternatives. I don't know if any progress has been made
on this front. Would you like to ask?
