Wouldn't it be nice to split up non-free in, say, a non-free and a
non-dist directory? Then you could put in non-free all packages that
have restrictions but could be distributed with debian releases, and in
non-dist you would put packages that cannot be distributed with debian
releases. Then the package maintainers can decide where a package
belongs, and CD-pressers don't need to check out each package in
