So what were you calling a major PITA to our users, then?
Lots of it. Dealing with a new archive. Dealing with a different
BTS. etc. Especially since it's all con and no pro for those users.

New archive is a one-time edit to sources.list, dealing with a different BTS seems to require little user effort (Bugs header, reportbug files), etc.

Did someone say 124 developers had packages in non-free? That's not an
insignificant portion of our developers, you know.
"insignificant" is a noise word unless you define what you see as significant.
Well I don't consider 15% or thereabouts to be insignificant.

I thought it was closer 10%?
