One way to handle the free vs. non-free is to separate (a la a few
distributions) the non-free from the free into dispirate downloads.
e.g. have a moonbase-nonfree where modules such as nvidia_driver,
j2sdk, etc. can go. You can also add warnings to these packages that
tell a user they need to go do a few jigs around a maypole before they
can use it and to not forget the sacrificial chicken.
The best way, I've found, is to keep the non-free as separate from the
free as possible and to even setup guidelines to define what 'free'
and 'non-free' mean to you as a group.
