And, in fact, that rewritten license should be what's in
/usr/share/doc/packagename/copyright, not the GNU GPL.

The copyright file should have the license that applies to the work.  Not a
"read the copyright file and apply this patch" statement in the README file
(or worse, in about.html on the author's website, or in an email message)
