But it will exactly have this effect, and as a corollary will kill
Debian as a mainstream Distribution. And that's a _real_ pity.

Even if the distribution splits (by the non-free supporters taking
"original Debian" and re-adding non-free), both distributions will
suffer since the same amount of man power is applied to two things
instead of only one.

Please, let's work together, and accept the opinion of other people.
You can't force your opinion down people's throats, they will vote
with their feet (or their install CDs).
