Of course its free. But it only fits to php itself. If you wan't to use it
with php as it is, it just won't fit to the pear module, which leads to a
point where the code have no license, because the php couldn't be adapted to
that code, which makes the code undistributable. Not non-free, but
non-distributable. Moving the non-free wouldn't be suitable, it has to be
removed from debian. 

As Jörg stated in his reject mail: "The reason for this decision is the
license which does not really fit the package.". Not: this license is

Best wishes

P.S. forgive me if I'm wrong here, I'm no lawyer :)
