Well, I'm not suggesting that warsow be removed from Debian. The old
warsow-data is at least distributable, so it can exist in non-free and
there can be a playable game with the old warsow. I'm sure the old
warsow can still be distributed through Debian since it's licensed
under the old terms. I'll have to contact debian-legal to make sure.
