	I have heard that before, and I have wondered about that
 statement. I maintain angband, and old game, whose license,
 since it does not permit commercial distribution, is non free.

	I don't think that a place to keep angband shall just
 magically appear, either. I don't have access to a place where I can
 maintain a apt gettable repository. I suspect angband players shall
 have to go somewhere else to get it.


ps.  All new contributors for angband are committed to the GPL, but one
     needs to chase down some of the original set who have vanished
 Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny.
