The binary provided *by Fluendo* is free-as-in-beer. The binary that *we'd*
build and distribute (under contract with Fluendo) would be free-as-in-beer.
The source is free-as-in-speech in both cases (same source). We already have
various free-as-in-beer things in restricted and multiverse. There are many
subtleties involved here. :-)
