Bug#451937: pastebin package upload heading to NEW today

hi everyone,

we had some internal desire for this where i work, so we spent some time
putting together an initial version of this package.  i'll be uploading this
version shortly.

regarding the licensing issues:

- according to members of the ftp-master team, the AGPL is okay[1]
- there are other AGPL works in main[2]
- however, the AGPLv3 is OSI approved and generally speaking GPLv3 compatible,
  and the code is "AGPLv1 or later", so in the interest of hopefully removing
  any doubt or complexity we chose to upgrade the licensing in this package
  to AGPLv3 (this is mentioned in debian/copyright).

[2] okay, i'll admit that this is based on hearsay (don't know an easy
    way to check locally)... but i've heard it said :)
