While the "concept" of Public Domain is fine for Debian, I'm a little
concerned about the execution. This doesn't seem like a "proper" licence
grant, like the GPL boilerplate, and hence might not be considered to be
sufficiently clear for Debian to take the risk on. I'd check with d-legal,
and perhaps try and get a clearer licence statement out of upstream.
