Yes, you are right.  I was just noting that this is not done in
general it seems, whether through other scripts or hand editing, etc.
Moreover, kfv.el is incomplete here, since it does not automatically
incorporate info from adopted leaves.  This is now being fixed, as a
part of incorporating all relevant adopted info.

I also expect to implement the latest advice from Brian regarding
output more useful for batch non-free file removal.
