I'm still puzzled what to do :-/
The facts as I see them:
* current policy allows afbackup to be part of the main dist
* Bruce proposed a few weeks ago to change the policy from free only
with Debian to completely free. This was discussed shortly, there
wasn't a final decision, time moved on ...
* Will the policy be changed with respect to this problem ? Did I miss
the final decision ?
* If yes, could somebody notify Christian Schwarz (hi, namesake :-)
and propose a new text for the policy ?
Thanks for clarifications !

What's the railroad to me ?
I never go to see
Where it ends.
It fills a few hollows,
And makes banks for the swallows,
It sets the sand a-blowing,
And the blackberries a-growing.
