So you are asking the dpkg copyright holders to change *their* licensing
to suit *your* needs? This is getting funnier and funnier.

Now here's the problem. Face it: there's no way you can convince all
dpkg copyright holders (and that's probably a lot of people) to
dual-license their code under a license that isn't even DFSG-free. What
are you proposing now to legally build a Debian OpenSolaris port?
(Yes, I'm asking just to know what weird idea will arise now.)
