Which will happen with the move of amd64 into the debian archive - but
that wont happen for sarge.

In the meantime someone pointed me to http://nonfree.alioth.debian.org/
where someone already did the work to classify the non-free crap.

Which means that one amd64 guy now needs to sit down, kicking out
anything thats undistributable for us, and then let us include it.
(As *one random* example, distributed-net is undistribtable for us, as
we arent Debian).

*I* wont do it, I have more important things to do. I will only help
with the final import into our archive after someone did the work.
