I cannot agree to this. If we use only such distinction many of usefull
packages will be gone from FTP or noone who want to "be legal" will risk
to distribute PLD.

Going further this way we may split packages into only GPL and non-GPL.
And than many packages, with much less retrictive licences will be gone.

BTW. I don't understand why such restrictive license as GPL is supposed
to be the most free one.... I don't say it is bad (I am using it for my
projects), but I wouldn't say it is the most free one.
