Ok, I guess I just don't get it. John, from what you have written,
this is what I understand about your proposal and the messages you've

1. You don't think it's going to make it any harder for our users to
find and install non-free software.

2. You don't think it's going to make it any harder for our developers
(who voluntarily choose to do so) to build, distribute, and support
non-free software.

3. You're not asking our users to give up non-free software whose
functionality they feel is not yet replaced by free software.
