Before we go off half-cocked here:
1) I have e-mailed the author asking for permission to distribute
a bug-fixed software
2) We are distributing various programs without source already.
These programs are not fixable. (Example: xforms)
I really don't think that we should make lack of modification
permission to be a reason to not include in non-free (after all, isn't
this what non-free is for?)
