Hold on. I didn't say it was free or anything, only that I didn't see
anything that struck me as obviously non-free. Some consider renaming
clauses non-free (although I don't), and the plethora of licenses used
for Truecrypt could be conflicting, even if each on its own is free.
Wait for another opinion before drawing any conclusions.
