However, the S in DFSG means "software"; the SC was adjusted to say that
everything in Debian is judged by the DFSG, but the DFSG was not renamed
(for example, to mean "Debian Free Stuff Guidelines").  This means, to
me, that everything in Debian is Software.

It's a moot issue, anyway; any time the dictionary lawyers nitpick
"software", the real point is probably long lost, anyway ... :)
