Bugs #370245, #370295, #370296. I tried to stick to clear-cut cases
where Debian is not following the license. Indemnification is more of
a policy decision. The "non-free is not part of Debian" argument is
also unclear, since a lot of people do not think it is true in
practice. Other than that, I think I covered all of the truly
problematic cases (as opposed to just being really annoying).
