Dual licensed under the other licenses too please.

Some of the data files in base-files are already under GPL (see
/usr/share/doc/base-files/copyright) so it would be just the Artistic,
BSD and LGPL licenses.

But thats rather beside the point. The point is that not 100% of
Debian is free and never will be. Some things have to be
excluded. Till the SC change non programms were excluded. Now nothing
seems to be.
