Yet another reason Debian sucks

I'm in Madrid, trying to set up a system here for the customer. They need a TN3270 program to talk to Hercules. No problem, right? Just install x3270 and all will be well...

...except that this is Debian, home of the political overriding the technical. x3270 was removed from Debian because they didn't like the license. I can't just say "apt-get install x3270" like I can everything else.

What a useless nuisance.
