the main problem i see here, is that the license fields are free-form,
so it's hard for a script to decide what is DFSG compatible and what not

a possible solution for this would be to make the script interactive.

something like the following (with "maintainer" being the user who
runs the script)
for each available drumkit do:
- - check if drumkit is already part of the package (probably comparing
hashes of the downloaded file). if so, skip it
- - check if the drumkit has a license attached. if not, skip it
- - present the drumkit information to the maintainer (in a readable form)
- - ask the maintainer to manually accept the drumkit (after they have
examined the license)
- - skip or add the new drumkit, based on maintainer's decision.

well, writing the script is one thing.
first we have to come up with a set of well defined tasks :-)
