Because we want to make sure that users of Debian have the freedom to
reproduce copies of the software, at least if they jumpo through the
easy hoop of aggregating it with something.

Because we're concerned with the user's right.

                   har brækket benet bør du gå til lægen for at få fastslået
       årsagen. Brug aldrig Herbalit<tm> mod benbrud uden lægens anvisning."
