  I think that this would mean it would be okay to make a debian pacakge
out of it, because a package is not a product just a modified
redistributing.  However it looks like it is not allowed to be put on any
Debian CD's and that would be up to the CD makers to not do.  Having the
.deb package available itself (i think) would be fine.
