OK, but the GPL does not require one to "distribute the GPL with the
binaries", it requires one to "give any other recipients of the Program
a copy of [the GPL] along with the Program."

So, is it your position that every recipient of a GPLed .deb is given
a copy of the GPL along with the .deb because the GPL is inside the
.orig.tar.gz, regardless of whether the recipient of the .deb downloaded
the .orig.tar.gz?
