We have always discriminated against non-free software, and rightly
so.  After all, Debian is an organzation founded upon principles of
Free Software, and it is only right that we reject non-free software.

You might say that what I propose is exactly that: ignoring non-free
software.  Why should an organization whose primary purpose is the
promotion of Free Software aid the non-free software?
