It'd probably be easiest to assert zealous FSF support and link to their page
that specifies what language we are not free to use:


...wherein we can no longer say "vendor" or "cloud", and are exhorted to
believe six impossible things before breakfast. (Alright, they don't
implicitly state that last bit.)

A more valuable use of time might be discussing the merits of supporting a
ZFS root in Debian.
