Non-free section

How about having a non-free section in each distribution but then putting
the packages into the proper places through symlinks?

I.e. the metrox wrapper would go into the x11 section where you would
expect such things. But it would only be present through a symlink into
the non-free section where the real file is to be located.

If Cd-Roms are made then obviously a couple of dangling symlinks exist.
The Cd-Rom owner could then retrieve the non-free directory tree via ftp
and have a complete distribution.

I am having a hard time finding stuff with the current scheme. Its very
annoying that pine, pico and ncftp are separate from the scheme of
packages that we use otherwise.
