The ocaml-menhir package has some code that is covered by QPL, but

Should I describe this as QPL, or does this call for a "QPL with
exceptions" tag? Rpmlint says the latter is (currently) invalid.
That's an odd exception, but it is one, nevertheless. Use "QPL with
exceptions" and either open a bug against rpmlint or ignore it in the
knowledge that you're smarter than a python string comparison tool. ;)
