Kristof, would you mind looking at that? I have to admit that I am a
little bit sick about how licensing analification became in Debian, in
10 years.

So, in short, I don't care a s**t about whether antpm ends up in Debian
or not as it ended up on my system where I need it.

If all this crap is sorted out, I may upload...or I may not, depending
on my state of mind at that moment.

Bubulle, that close to give away his GPG key and really stop doing
Debian stuff now. Really.
