I just went through all it's licenses. It looks like it will be slightly 
tedious packaging this, since you have to specify the license for every 
file in a package if you want it included in Ubuntu. Also, since one of 
the licenses that some of the files are released under is a non-free on, 
it would have to go into the multiverse repository, which may also deter 
some Ubuntu contributors to package it.
