We provide non-free packages when our users require them (Social Contract). If
there's no demand for libcwd there's no reason to provide it.  This is you as
the maintainer who should judge that.

I think it's specialy appropiate to take this in consideration for a library
that has no reverse dependencies.

Of course, maybe we should just wait for a response from upstream and see if
they want to re-license :).
