OK, back to priority one: copyright-wise, your package looks
like free software.  Matthew Garrett has given an explanation
which I accept, but I'd be more comfortable if someone gives
a clearer precedent for it, a downloader for software under a
restrictive copyright licence.

Unfortunately, I think you need to follow the Developer's Reference
section on "Repackaged upstream source" and I think you
should be more sparing in deleting TOOLS, before this package should
be uploaded.

I will do this (as soon as I have some free time)
