I will believe in it once i see it. I have serious doubts, but please,
go ahead, and prove me wrong.

That said, i wonder if the energy spent on that could not have been
better spent in something else, and if being able to be said as not
containing non-free is worth it.

This whole thing seems really hypocrit to me though, since the aim seems
to be for debian to drop non-free, but still provide non-free under
another name.
