Are there any legal problems with it?
FWIK kaffe uses BSD-like license - or at least what I have
in ./debian/copyright looks similar.
I asked seriously.
Lately I was thinking about your qt-awt GPL imlementation as
of a thing that will probably not be used too widely (unfortunatelly)
because of the license - which is incompatible even with some
DFSG-free  licenses (let alone non-free ones), like AFAIR
Apache license (which covers a lot of free-java stuff).
Is there any chance to ask the authors to relicense it under
something less restrictive (at least Apache-compatible)?

Yes, thanks - it "worked" as you can see in my other mail.
Changes to get it to this state were more than trivial.

 For real opinion about legal problems please contact
debian-legal at lists.debian.org mailing list. I am in no way
authoritative person for such kind of discussion.
