	How many packages are there under this license? Seems to me
 that in order for a license to be termed ``common'', it should indeed
 be common -- and some sizeable fraction of Debian packages be
 available under the terms of that license (the sizeable fraction to
 be decided upon, of course, but shouldn't it at least 10%?)


	Here are some quick and dirty results, good for ball park
 estimates (some packages are dual licensed, for example).
