Please, learn about Debian philosophy and you will get the answer to
your question. Read from here:
http://www.debian.org/ all the "about" part.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Debian will give you a nice overview.
Even in the case you release the opera code with a license that allow
distributing opera in non-free, there is not much point on distributing it
when we already have _totally free_ browsers.
