I know they're different.  A program with incomplete source isn't the
same as a program that's not legal to use.  What about one that's
both?  You stick it in one category (contrib, last time I checked) and
lose the information about the other categorization.

A person is either going to install such things on a personal basis,
or accept/reject such things on some kind of policy basis.  The
current names don't really inform such decisions, and the current
partitioning seems akward.
