You should have brought this up on debian-legal, by the way.  That's
what it's for.

The license is appalling, I'm afraid.  I totally fails the DFSG. It's
also probably non-enforceable: it is restricting use, not copying. And 
that's not what copyright is for.

It would have to become a 'shrink-wrap' type license.  No one is
really sure if shrink-wrap licenses are enforceable, I don't think.
