Yes, if. However, it seems to me that people write software for their
own needs - not because "it would be cool to have a free replacement
of Oracle."

I don't want to see the list as a method to get rid of non-free on
Debian servers. I understood that someone had seen or would see it as
a possible tool for that. Maybe I misunderstood, I was quite tired
when I wrote that (having woken up on 5 AM to change configuration of
a server and check the result).
