Max, did you know that Debian requires *everything*, not just
software, to be DFSG-free? Not that it's particularly relevant since
there isn't a huge amount under the Against DRM license, but...

There are many platforms that _require_ DRM -- notably Sony game

would prevent me from porting any software to those platforms -- even if
I made clear-text, modifiable and/or source versions available.
