If anyone said Debian has problems with dual licensing, someone must
have misunderstood something or someone.

Dual licensing usually means 'you can choose any of the two' for

e.g. dual licensed (GPL|proprietary) is seen quite a lot. Debian just
chooses the GPL license.

iirc back in the days, the oxygen icons was specifically *only* under
cc-by-(sa)-2.0 and given that one isn't considered free by Debian, we
got them to add lgpl as an alternative.
