Ugh, this was one of the reasons I moved away from debian. Too much
time spent on political issues and trying to be political correct and
'pure'. I like the gentoo way of giving me the programs I need here
and now. With debian there was always a bunch of unoffical dpkg sites
which had to reside in sources.list to get some files which were
deemed 'unappropiate' for the offical Debian.
Moving down the path of free/non-free will soon make you end up on the
road of insanity. Who's to decide what's non-free and not? Perhaps an
easy way to dump the LICENSE field in the ebuild you're about to
install, but adding a USE flag for it seems to overdo a non-issue I
To segfault is human; to bluescreen moronic.
