why not replace individual programs?

[ please cc replies to me ]

If people really want to do something useful, which will show in a
practical way that we can do without non-free software, why don't you
take all of the programs in non-free, and make a hit list.  Examine
them and see if there is a free replacement that is every bit as good
as the original.  If so, maybe that program doesn't need to be in
Debian any longer.  If not, you have a bit of *real* work to do to
help out the free software effort, which will result in real benefits,
not just mailing-list wanking.  This is a workable idea that will have
real results, and piss off a lot less people.
