Well, as far as we are concerned, things are either free,
depend on non-free things, or are non free. We do not distinguish
between types of non-freeness -- like free for non-commercial use,
free for teachers, free unless sold for profit, etc.
This is not a political thing.
Telephone books are like dictionaries -- if you know the answer before
you look it up, you can eventually reaffirm what you thought you knew
but weren't sure. But if you're searching for something you don't
already know, your fingers could walk themselves to death. Erma
