Argh, it's CeCILL, a French sub-GPL. I think it's been discussed here before,
but I didn't find any conclusion to it yet. I don't think 4.2 is unclear but
I'm uncomfortable with 13. The GPL upgrade is a nice way to avoid the
questions and uncertainty: license your debian/ directory under the GPL,
which I think enables the upgrade.
