I prefer not to include this in non-free if I can help it, so although
it is good to know that it is OK for non-free, I am going to see if
the upstream is willing to change the license so it can be included in
main first. But if that will take too long, for whatever reason, I
will consider putting it into non-free to get it into Sarge before
freeze and then move it into main if it gets resolved. I am not
interested in maintaining it if it stays in non-free however.

I've forwarded these to the upstream.

I would really appreciate that, hopefully the upstream would also be
amenable to this, we shall see.
