This seems to be fixed in the packaging repo.  What is left to do
before the updated package is uploaded?  Would you be terribly
offended if I requested removal of the current package in the
meantime, so we could continue to set a good example by not asking
mirrors to violate the GPL?

Thanks again for your help and kindness,
