	Why? We certainly do not want to list every licence which is
 DFSG free as examples in the DFSG. I object to having to change the
 DFSG every time a new license appears on the scene.

	It is DFSG compliant. It just is not one of the examples. The
 examples are by no means considered to be an exhaustive and complete
 list (It oes nt say: these are the only licenses we feel are
 compliant, it just says here are some we feel are free). We should
 not change the DFSG for something this trivial.

	I think there is no need for this.
