All right, fine.  File a grave bug against all wordlist packages in
Debian and insist upon their removal from the archive until it can be
established that they don't violate EU law.

If need be, I can host the removed packages from my public_html
directory on people.debian.org, which is a U.S. host.  Of course, only
Debian users from the U.S., Canada, and other countries that respect the
principle of _Feist_ can use them.
