What sort of overhaul is needed? There are quite a few different
copyrights asserted, making it fairly bulky, but I don't spot any
wrongness.

I removed common/Source/lang/LangPrimSource/HID_Utilities/* since that
had an apple copyright with a dubious gpl compatibility, and (in the
svn packaging info) removed the apple entry from debian/copyrights as
a result.
(To be more accurate: We have a script that makes a pruned
linux-source .tar.gz, so what I did was to add the folder to the list
of what gets pruned out. The folder is still there in the upstream and
used on mac.)
