can't censor me!" crew. It's all just so damn tiresome.

Then lets nip this in the bug right now. When I was packaging my Acme::Brainfuck perl module, the compromise made was:

Package: libacme-brainfck-perl
Provides: libacme-brainfuck-perl

This way the casual peruser of package lists is not f-bombed and the searcher for the word brainfuck still gets matches. Thus both the children and the first amendment are saved hurrah!
