Please, no useless limitation to "free" software. Not in contrib
(maybe/surely in base, opt).
I want to use the system, not pray in the church of "free" world.

I think, a "License" field in Pkgfile is a good idea. So everybody can
see if he has to respect some license restriction. And I don't expect
that someone will put hacked commercial software on a server and so on...
