For the author of ttf-larabie-*, i tried that when i made these
packages. The licence we got does NOT fulfill all DFSG requirements, but
is already very liberate. I don't think we'll get further than that.
So please don't press him, unless you maybe pay him to release his fonts
(or some of the most useful ones at least, like Blue Highway)
under the GPL ;)
