"Enjoy" is not a term I would use to describe the process of
experiencing, say, Derrida's _Limited Inc._, but if that work were
freely licensed, I would certainly be able to access, read, and
otherwise "use" it.

But yeah, I do lean towards going whole hog.  There are lots of things
in Debian other than computer programs and documentation.
