        This I like. Rather than imposing political agendas on all
 users, people who do not like non-free software can just install it
 on their machine. We can even make vrms be as obnoxious as we wish --
 like asking on every install, every removal, and sending email every
 5 seconds, deleting non-free software surreptitiously, whatever
 people want on their machines.

        It should not be imposed on users who have chosen to so
 install the non-fee software.

 is logical and beneficial.  We cannot disregard that philosophy
 merely for personal gain, no matter how important that gain might
 be. Spock, "Journey to Babel", stardate 3842.4
