[gNewSense-users] EnvyNG suggests non-free drivers

The description of the packages envyng-core, envyng-gtk and envyng-qt
"install the ATI or the NVIDIA driver
EnvyNG is an application written in Python which will download the
latest ATI or NVIDIA driver or the Legacy driver (for older cards)
(according to the model of your card) from ATI or Nvidia's website
and set it up for you handling dependencies (compilers, OpenGL,
etc.) which are required in order to build and use the driver."

So, it's only purpose in life is the installation of the non-free
drivers from AMD/ATI and NVIDIA. The issue is somewhat similar to the
issue with ndiswrapper, as EnvyNG is free software itself. Do you think
that this package should be removed?
