Does that mean that License: PD won't work with config-edit? I don't
have a Debian system handy to test, but I have seen that used in many
packages, and have thus adopted it into some of my own, c.f.:

I just checked the DEP5 proposal itself and your parser is correct in
the strictest sense, but will it be able to parse older d/copyright
files to perhaps automatically convert "PD" to "public-domain"
(possibly also issuing a warning in the process)?
