Can you elaborate? Its dependencies seem to be satisfiable using
main. Last time I read policy, that is sufficient to put it in main.
How many GPL-incompatible packages exist that can only be compiled by
gcc or compilers outside of main? Why should those not be moved into
contrib because of that build dependency?
