I think it depends on whether there are any actual game levels around
which are free.

The distinction between contrib and main is not whether it is
*possible* to create something free which the contrib software would
be useful for; it's really whether there *is* such a thing.

If the only practical use of the engine is to run non-free levels from
id, then it belongs in contrib.  If someone has levels (that at are
all fun--that is, which are real games) which the engine works with,
then it belongs (along with those levels) in main.
