Haha.  You think you can just snap your fingers, and rewrite dpkg?  Do you
know how long it took to get to this point?  It took years to become *mostly*
stable(and it still has issues on occassion).  Have you even tried to look at
it's source?  Do you have any clue how much error checking it does?

ps: please look at it's source; then you won't be able to honestly say you've
rewritten it, as you would be corrupted.

<dpkg hat>
As for relicensing it, fuck off.  I need to find a ClueBat(tm) attachment for
the Sodomotron 2000.
