Well, licensecheck is a unreplaceable tool, but it cannot be a unique
ressource for copyright/license checking, as it suffers from bugs
(and/or unknown patterns) like any other software, too. And it would be really
good if copyright/license problems would be sorted out, before packages
enter NEW, which is a goal that cannot be accomplished with an
automatical tool (in every case).
