Good.  As a consequence, I hereby state that I don't consider the
Non-waivable Compulsory License Schemes clause as an issue anymore.
That is to say: I am *no* longer worried by clause 3e(i) of
CC-by-sa-v3.0/unported and CC-by-v3.0/unported licenses.

I am still worried by absurd laws, but that's a completely different
beast (we should not blame licenses for that).

I am still concerned by the other CC-v3.0 issues listed in my analyses:
Is anyone willing to kill another concern of mine (by following the
constructive discussion approach, please)?

Final disclaimers, as usual: IANAL, TINLA, IANADD, TINASOTODP.

 Need to read a Debian testing installation walk-through?
