Meanwhile, in real reality, people keep putting it into debian
packages - directly, or indirectly through wallpapers and artwork and
so on - because they expect debian project materials to be under
licences accepted in the debian system; and it hinders us fixing other
licensing bugs because it is used (incorrectly) in accusations of
hypocrisy.  We should care about this as a way to avoid a whole class
of bugs and help with fixing another class, so spending less time on
bloody licensing bugs.
