Well, I don't think it has become non DFSG-free. The sections that
disappeared made the old version non-viral in some cases, but I
take it that the normal provision for modifications and distribution
under the original license is left intact. This leaves the terms no
worse than GPL.

However, the new version certainly doesn't promote code reuse in the
same manner the old one used to.
