While I agree with the stance that this documentation is not, in fact,
Free, I'd like to point out that the GFDL does not reflect any change
in RMS's stance: the Emacs manual has always been licensed with
invariant sections, for instance.  Richard Stallman's idea of Freedom
might differ from yours, but it hasn't changed very much.
