If you have non-free enabled and install a package from main, it should install
the dependencies from main. So you should have e.g. "rar | rar-nonfree" instead
of the other way round.
non-free stuff shouldn't be in main depends at all IMO, even as an alternative.

Then please state what you think should happen in the case pointed out by Emilio.
