One way in which it differs from the Zope web bug, is that the GPL clause
only applies when you want to distribute your changes. Which would mean
Debian's required to include the code in its packages, but users are
free to remove it themselves, if they wish. That seems entirely feasible
for Debian.

That may not be what the PHPNuke author wants, and given some of
Stallman's stated plans for v3 of the GPL, it mightn't stay that way,
but for the moment it seems to be the case.
