Completely wrong, IMO. Celestia does not appear to be a continuation
of openuniverse, but an alternative. If you make the celestia package
C&R with openuniverse, then the user can't install celestia to try it
out without removing their installation of openuniverse, which is then
uninstallable because it's no longer in Debian. And there doesn't seem
to be any other reason that celestia can't coexist with openuniverse.

    system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
    world.       -- seen on the net
