There was a vote.  This new package abides by the results it and remains
free.  As a bonus, they went to the trouble of packaging the docs into
`emacs21-common-non-dfsg' and you still complain?  They could have
simply dropped the docs altogether; they didn't.  All they have done is
separate the package into a part that the FSF says you can _completely_
and freely modify, and another part that the FSF says you can't.
Install the available non-free package and get over it.

Jérôme, I for one am glad for all the work you put into Emacs for debian.
