If I'm understanding you correctly on this (i.e. remove from Debian
every software which has parts covered by software patents), this is
a complete nonsense. It will require removing basically *everything*
from Debian and will give people the power of vetting out from Debian
software only by depositing (uhm, not sure which is the English verb
corresponding to the "creation" of a new patent) a new software patent.
