Re: Dangerous precedent being set - possible serious violation of the GPL

    infolved did bring up my original objection---that removing the suggests
    will make it harder for people to find things like "gimp-nonfree" (which
    is IMO badly named considering that the contents of the package are
    completely free--unless you live in the drain-bamaged US where LZW is
    patented and Unisys wants to make a fast buck off GIF files..)

You are entirely right that programs prohibited by patents
in some countries should not be treated like programs
restricted by their authors.

gimp-nonfree should be renamed and reclassified as a free non-us
