because they are completely different. moreover, using debian
terminology, they are *both* "free". instead mpg321 and mpg123 are very
similar, with the difference that the first is free, the second isn't. a
non-free package is useless if there is a free package that does the
same thing. if a non-free package wants to be widespread, it must offer
something that no free package offers.
