I installed some non-free stuff (openmotif) in an attempt to sort
out apparent interface problems - lesstif didn't play right and CDE
which includes non-free Motif was apparently correct. Purged openmotif
and associated packages when it turned out the  problem was elsewhere
but openmotif remains listed as a non-free package. 

If you purge a package, could it please disappear from the vrms listing?
