Looks nice. I think I will do this.

Hmm, am I mistaken in my belief that the policy states *how* a piece of software
should be packaged (given that it has the correct license), but not *what* a
piece of software should do (given that it doesn't do anything malicious) ? I
had to patch the logchchck.sh script anyway to fix the other bug reports, so I
can't see how policy should prevent the change you proposed above.
