I guess, from what I have read elsewhere, that not only are these things
non-free, but we have no licenses whatsoever to re-distribute these
files. Is that correct?
(merely being non-free shouldn't cause files to be removed from snapshot
if we can still distribute them).
PS: I have filed bugs for these issues - 646897 for the qcad removal and
646898 for partlibrary.
