I think this is a fair way of doing things. The script could ask for
sections to be included, defaulting to main and possibly crontrib? I
don't think it's imperative for non-free to be included in the default
list *if* it's documented clearly. It does *not*, of course, have to be
documented on rms's expurgated web site. :) Existing configurations
would be left alone, I assume.
