Ah, I'm sorry, I thought you were arguing about freedom and its

You were instead talking about practical (and rather reasonable)
concerns for archive capacity and the like.
Well, I would say: it's the price of freedom...  :p

First of all, TNX for the explanation.
Actually, being a debian-legal subscriber I don't usually set any
Mail-Followup-To as I prefer when people reply to the list only (unless
they want to send me a private message: PGP/MIME encryption and digital
signature are welcome in that case!).
This time, however, I thought that I should keep the Mail-Followup-To:
debian-devel@lists.debian.org, debian-legal@lists.debian.org already set
in the thread...
Correct me if I'm wrong.
