Would making them available as
ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/stable/not-officially-part-of-debian--non-free/
make everyone happy then? (With a nice symlink from stable/non-free for
the convenience of our users, of course. :) If that's not enough, how is
non-free.debian.org enough? Shouldn't it be non-free.sorta-debian.org?
How does the casual browser know that something on a particular server
that *is* in the debian.org domain isn't really part of debian? Again,
who's this targeted at--casual users or hard-liners who already know the
difference?
