	What ongoing talks? The ones that have produced absolutely no
 visible sign of progress for six months, while we continue shipping
 non-free bits in main? The ones that show absolutely no signs of
 going anywhere?  Is it ethical to take the convenient path to keep
 shipping non-free stuff in main just bvecause, even though it is
 non-free, it is useful, hiding behind the fact oh, we have been
 talking about it for 2.5 years, let us keep on talking, with no end
 in sight, while continuing to ship non-free stuff in main?
