As it seems there are a few persons interested by getting those bugs
fixed asap, could we create a team of persons willing to deal with users
who will get affected by the removal of non-free code? I really don't
want to deal with user complaints. The best would be to use a
pseudo-package in the BTS for that, so that we can reassign bugs easily.

Then I will remove the non-free code with my packages.
