Any license which does now probably should continue to, with the exception
of some REALLY bizarre things that have gotten in somehow.

My point was the DFSG2 is flawed by design.  Its purpose is to change terms
that software is allowed into Debian by in a manner that is more extreme
than RMS even.  That's _BAD_.

Of course the DFSG1 needs fixing, but I'd rather live with a slightly broken
DFSG1 that makes sense than a completely screwed DFSG2!

Show me the code or get out of my way.
