We should not, under any circumstances, mess our distro, only because
some group of morons claiming to be `government' ban such package here or
elsewhere. If there are such laws somewhere citizen of such country have only
these posibilities :
1) try to make gov change such laws
2) try to change gov
3) go abroad
4) go outlaw
