But of course, this leads to an interesting discussion. Does
Debian Legal consider the four-clause BSD license to be DFSG-free?
If it were a new license, and we were asked about it today, I think
we'd eventually say "no".
Personally, I feel that it is not free, except for the grandfathering.
it violate DFSG 9? Or is it grandfathered in by DFSG 10? Note that
DFSG 10 does not indicate _which_ BSD license it is talking about.
While the DFSG doesn't, I believe chronology does. I think DFSG 10 was
written before the Great Relicensing, so the modern BSD did not exist
at the time.
