Actually everything about Debian (the project) is a political agenda.
That doesn't mean that it is invalid though. 

That being said, this topic is WAY OFF-TOPIC for the discussion. The
discussion is:

Will we accept GNU TLS.

Currently there has not been one technical argument that is valid to
have us include GNU TLS.

Now is their a legal argument? Maybe, but until an *attorney* states
that there is an issue this is all m00t.

Speaking of which I am going to bounce of to SPI and see if we can get
an actual answer to this.
