Personally, I don't buy the notion that this is a release issue at
all. Dropping non-free stuff just isn't that hard; it wouldn't take

Anyway, a non-free release is useless to many people and a disservice
to our users; ignoring crippling issues like this, just to get a
release out sooner, does not sound like a good idea to me.
