I think it has a serious flaw: how can people agree on what non-free

is a sensible compromise and anything else harms everybody: Debian
project, Debian maintainers and Debian users.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w -- Ari Makela <hauva@iki.fi> - http://www.iki.fi/hauva/
use strict;my $j=Japh->new();$j->print();package Japh;sub new{my $c=shift;
