Please avoid the fallacy of assuming that every right required by the
DFSG is something that some in the Debian project itself intends to
actually do. The requirements are there much more to make sure our
users have them than to make sure *we* have them.

[This being said without implying anything about the freedom or lack
thereof of the Computer Modern fonts].
