If Apple put in code they don't own and Debian distributed it, then
clause 5 means that when the people sue Apple for that distribution,
Debian has to pay for Apple's defense.  Normally, Debian would only
pay for Debian's defense.

Clauses 3 and 4 just means that if the code doesn't work, don't
complain to Apple.  That only closes out a narrow class of reasons to
sue Apple.
