I welcome ideas for improvements of licensecheck2dep5!

Yes, it currently is shipped with CDBS but makes sense to separate (I 
did start some time ago to move it into devscripts, but was turned off

license-reconcile began, I believe, as a fork of licensecheck2dep5..  I 
have not yet figured out how to actually use license-reconcile - it may 
be far superior on all fronts, you'll have to consult its author about
