i just marked (wordy sgi licence is
non-free) as a dupe of (xfree86
includes software under non-free licences). i also bumped the priority
of bug 103 to L2, and copied over all comments from 129 for easy access.

it contains non-free files (two). saying 'all of xorg is non-free' is a
bit misleading :)

unless we have luck finding someone to rewrite the two files listed in
129, plus any otheres that are found.
(i note at this point those are the only two files under the SGI licence
i'm aware of).

i think it needs more people to test kevins/my packages and break thier
systems to help us decide :)
