With respect to copyrights, the core system is the same as the main
WRT copyrights, we have four areas:
Completely free stuff, main distribution
Stuff that has problems with distributions, non-free
Stuff that's not completely free, but has no distribution problems,
Stuff that we cannot distribute, nowhere
And I think adding more distinctions would be very unwise.
