Notice though that we delayed that, not because of not caring or other such
issues, but because we were expecting that the discussions with the FSF solved
the GFDL problem and that this move would have proven unecessary. It was only
once it became clear that this would not be the case in a timely way for etch
that the move of the non-free documentation out of main started.
