I'm afraid I'm not a wealth of knowledge here, but I noticed it in the
list of "Removed Packages" in the recent release announcement of Debian
3.0r2 on the Debian-announce list. 

Looking at http://master.debian.org/~joey/3.0r2/ I notice it is actually
on the Accepted list, though they have this note with it:
"The license incorrectly says that it's LGPL but it is in fact a unique
license which is non-DFSG-free."

Perhaps Mr. Schulze (joey@debian.org) would have more information about
this, since he appears to be the author of that page.
