Oh, come on. Any argument that implies that we only consider the GPL
free because we explicitly say it is is insane. Without considering the
GPL free, we have nothing. Interpreting the DFSG in such a way that we
can only ship a kernel and basic userland because the GPL is explicitly
listed suggests that the interpretation is incorrect.
