Well, let's be nice to the LaTeX folks.  They went ahead and came up
with a DFSG-free license in their new LPPL draft, with the exception of
one oversight which I'm told was not intentional.

The LaTeX Project folks indulged us in far more nitty-gritty discussion
of the LPPL license than we've yet seen from the FSF with the FDL.
