Yeah, he steals it. Except for the fact that the Debian community *gives it away*. As long as he complies with the GPL, he's not stealing any code, any more than the Debian community are stealing code from Linus Torvalds. If the Debian community wanted to stop him, they'd just have to licence their future code with a "No Mark Shuttleworth" clause in their license.
