Is there any reason not to simply remove this lib from lenny, seeing
that it has no r-deps? The changes are pretty complex due to the fact
that 0.7.1 never made it to testing.
I'd prefer to be able to ship liblicense-cli with lenny, which does depend
on liblicense3 (in 0.8-1).
But I'm okay with removing it from lenny outright.
Goodbye, cool world.
