There is a difference between declaring a license DFSG free and
declaring it compatible with the GPL.

Debian can support a license all it wants, but if it's not compatible
with another one, then there's nothing *Debian* can do to change that,
apart from asking people to change it.

Note that I haven't even looked at the compatibility issue itself.

The idea is that the first face shown to people is one they can readily
accept - a more traditional logo. The lunacy element is only revealed
subsequently, via the LunaDude. [excerpted from the Lunatech Identity Manual]
