[1] The copyright appears to meet our standards (DFSG).

[2] The only alternative imap daemon doesn't support mail stored in
mbox format.  [Which makes a certain amount of sense, considering the
reliability issues associated with mbox, but still...]

We might indeed drop all UW software -- either because we decide that
we want better relations with their developers (though that seems a bit
self-contradictory), or because we decide it's too much of a headache.
But that's a decision for the individual package maintainers.

Also, note that I'm waiting for some clarification from UW on this
"copyright issue".
