I'm sure you're confusing debootstrap with base-config, which is not a
part of the boot floppies per se. I'm glad to do any "internal solution"
type changes in base-config that would be useful to the FSF. I
frequently consider making it not even mention non-free, but I don't
particularly like dealing with lynch mobs.. the mob's getting smaller
and less angry every month though.
