I recently checked php3 copyright file and it states that PHP3 is dual
licensed: PHP license or GNU GPL at the recipient's option:
http://packages.debian.org/changelogs/pool/main/p/php3/php3_3.0.18-28/php3.copyright

The DFSG compliance of the PHP license should not be a concern if we
have the GPL as an option to be chosen, right?
