Cost has little to do with free as the DFSG defines it, so
this is a bit of a red herring. May one distribute modified versions
of the software? May one distribute binary copies?

You shall get arguments about that. I postfix markedly
inferior? And the non freeness of qmail does detract from the
suitability of using it in Debian.

You have an uphil task before you to convince me of the
desirability of this GR.
I don't know why, but first C programs tend to look a lot worse than
first programs in any other language (maybe except for fortran, but
then I suspect all fortran programs look like `firsts') Olaf Kirch
