This is going to be some work for me.  Oracle's legal department has been
very helpful on our open source requests so far, but it's a large team and
is not familiar with this issue yet.  I'll need to find, then brief, then
extract approval from, the right people here.

Before I do that, can I get some kind of authoritative statement from
Debian that the effort is necessary, and that it will satisfy the concerns
that have raised this issue for the second time?  I want to be helpful,
but I want to be sure we are solving the problem here.  To that end,
direction from db, release or legal -- whoever can speak for Debian --
would be good.
