An additional point to make is that a license is neither free nor
non-free.  Packages are judged for freeness, not licenses.  Two packages
with the same license could be judged differently based on extra-license
comments the copyright holder has made regarding intent or interpretation, 
or based on how the content of the package interacts with license
