Perhaps.  We'd have to verify (or he'd at least have to assert) 
that the remaining modules are purely his and contain no GPL code, and 
probably change the license statement to be consistent everywhere.  
There may be other steps I'm missing before it could go into non-free.

Also, Debian should not distribute software whose author has given an 
indication that he intends to retroactively change a license.  It's under 
question whether this is possible, but I don't want to be a test case.
