zsnes belonging to main instead of contrib (was: Re: RFS: tvbrowser -- TV-Browser is a java-based TV guide)

So even if you managed to build it entirely with free tools at some

practice for e.g. emulators such as zsnes which require non-free roms.

I still disagree as zsnes does not *require* non-free ROMs. One could write a free ROM, and one presenting the Debian logo is provided. It does not depend on any non-free system ROM to run correctly. There is also a bug report about this: #313137.

What's debian-legal's view on this?

Kind regards,
