Somebody somewhere is going to argue that seperate .deb files is seperate
distribution.  You could argue that their interpretation is wrong and it
might be.  Point is that there'd be an argument and people wouldn't
really be satisfied the matter was settled.

I want the matter settled to my satisfaction, which means I'm not gonna
be happy till the license issues are resolved all around and they're both
sitting in main.  THEN I will be satisfied.
