See, though, that's the thing. None of us sweared to agree with RMSs
views. However, we *did* promise to follow the Social Contract and DFSG,
*at the very least* in regards to our work on Debian. And now you're
saying that doing so is "nit-picking".

I have no problems putting the tg3 driver in non-free *once we can
legally distribute it at all*. The same goes for AutoCAD, or
who-knows-what that you want to distribute. Fine, whatever. But don't
complain when non-free finally gets out of main, where it has no
business being.
