Eh, it's only a problem if the upstart maintainers in Debian refuse to
accept work (via either BTS patches, or done directly by comaintainers)
that upstream will not also accept.

This position itself seems incompatible with the belief that upstream
was not interested in non-Linux portability patches.  If upstream is
expected to refuse certain patches needed for kFreeBSD, there's no
point in caring about the fact that they will _also_ refuse certain
patches because they require signed contributor agreements.

Also, the only practical way this differs from the situation with
software from either the Free Software Foundation or the Apache
Software Foundation seems to be that, oddly, more people think
Canonical is evil than think the FSF and ASF are evil.
