As long as we don't have to be able to uphold our interpretation, I'd
agree that this is probably what the author meant and what he *thinks*
he's written.

However, it's so badly and ambiguously expressed (e.g., all things
being equal, the phrase "the GNU software license" could refer to GPL
or LGPL or something third) that I think the package maintainer
should contact the author and ask for clarification.
