Package which have a DFSG-compliant license and don't use a patented
algorithm will be allowed in main (as happens right now).
In addition, packages which have a DFSG-compliant license and use
a patented algorithm that does not have a restrictive license will
also be allowed in main. This has also always been so, but was never
formulated in debian policy for some reason.
