More clearly, I think it's postcardware (which I think has always been
regarded as a failure of several DFSG points) - and also effectively a
termination clause on the death of the licensor (another famous way to
breach the DFSG).

Other than that, I broadly agree with Ben Finney.  It resembles some
mistakes I made in ac.uk.

This email says "ITP" in the subject line, so can someone point me at
the bug for it, please?  I didn't find it at a glance.
