Well one of the tools, uuagc [1], is released as free software (Artistic
License), but the other one, frown, (only needed for one file) is not
released yet.

I have already packaged uuagc, but I can not package frown yet, because
it isn't released yet. I have mailed the author of frown and he will
release it but he wants the do some bug fixing first and he is quite
busy. If uuagc is included in main I still need to wait on frown
although it is only needed for one file (which never changes anyway),
