I doubt that, Acrobat Reader's license is completely fucked up, it
disallows packaging. "you may not otherwise alter or modify the installer
program or create a new installer for any of such software".
NMUs aren't an insult, they're not an attack, and they're
not something to avoid or be ashamed of.
