Personally, I don't think Fedora ought to ship any package which they
can't patch.  I know that DJB (no, the non-RH one) stuff has the same
restriction, but IMO, it's just ego that has them writing these
licenses.  When they decide to play by the rules everybody else does,
then we let them into our sandbox.
