I don't believe they are compatable, and a reading of the Artistic
License supports my feeling. OTOH, relying on my analysis would be
foolish, so I've forwarded this to debian-legal. Honestly, the best
answer would come from rms@gnu.org, but I hestitate to bother him.

(For debian-legal: the question is whether libreadline's License (GPL,
IIRC) and the Artistic License are compatable licenses.)
