No. I thought (and I am already sorry to have kicked of this discussion)
that it was removed from tetex because of the current license and not
the old one. 

So for now I leave it in, also in the Debian packages. We brought it to
debian-legal, without response till now. If there is a change, you will
hear from me.

Best wishes

The spare seat-cushion carried by a London bus, which is placed
against the rear bumper when the driver wishes to indicate that the
bus has broken down. No one knows how this charming old custom
originated or how long it will continue.
