If you're not willing to do that, then I suggest you shut the fuck up.
We can't ship without RPC in glibc

Equally, we shouldn't ship with known issues this severe.

We are already doing that. Continuing to do so will not intensify that

Yeah, because there is *no* difference whatsoever between:

	"We're sorry, upstream did not make clear to us the full
	 licensing terms of their software. Now that we have
	 found out, we've fixed it as quickly as possible."
	"Yeah, upstream didn't tell us before, so we shipped it then
	 and since we did before, we're just going to ignore our
	 principles and ship it for another two years. Hope you don't
	 mind! If you do, either write a free replacement or 'shut the
	 fuck up.'"

Oh, and there is a legal difference between unknowingly infringing on a copyright and knowingly infringing on one.
