I think your buzzer is malfunctioning. John seemed to be asking us not
to stretch the DFSG to non-software. Not the same thing.

I don't know. I just post it to try to get a response that actually
has some substance. I'd love to hear from someone who actually has a
basis in reality for a distinction, instead of something from their mind.
Does anyone have *NEW DATA* to bring to the discussion? Otherwise,
we can continue hearing the opinions of a few that we should allow
non-free software works into Debian because they like it, regardless of
the problems of distinguishing or justification, and then ignore them
just as happened over other pieces of non-free.
