I fully agree with this, but my problem is that I don't know where I could
get a legal counsel on behalf of Debian, if not in debian-legal. And,
checking the archives of this list, I couldn't find any common denominator
on this issue, only single person's opinions, some of which share the
viewpoint of the FSF, and some of which have said that they personally think
that the Python2 license goes just fine with the GPL.
