non-free is for non dfsg-compliant software which, however, may be
distributed by FTP.

pine is in non-free because license does not allow commercial use of
the pine trademark.

If this were all, pine would be like many other non-free packages.

But this is not all, the UW does not want "modified binaries" to be
distributed, and as a result of this, no binary .deb packages may be
distributed by FTP.
