I know this is policy, but am I the only one who thinks this is
completely bass-ackwards? If the debian/copyright (or more accurately,
/usr/share/doc/foo/copyright) was *only* the license, then I could
just cp the license from upstream (assuming it's not one of the common
licenses), and put all the debian specific stuff in "README.Debian", where
it would actually make sense...

    world.       -- seen on the net
