Based on their slight alterations to my rewriting of their license, the
current .91 draft would comply with the DFSG2.

I still plan to vote against anything which removes the patch clause and
puts a time limit on the advertising clause.  I do agree the original DFSG
has a couple of bugs and they should be fixed, but a revision of the current
DFSG seems preferable to a complete rewrite.

Show me the code or get out of my way.
