"mICQ was trojaned to fail on Debian"
Well, mICQ's author inserted code to make the Debian maintainer look like a boob (and it worked!). Using the word "trojan" to describe this is a little strong, don't you think? While it may technically be correct, it almost certainly gives the reader the wrong impression. mICQ's author certainly did NOT have the same motives as 99.9% of trojan writers, and the outcome was totally different too.
