Thanks for clarifying dude.  OK, so if we can all agree that the
package will not be modified or sold, and Alessandro has a package
ready to go, let's get it into Ubuntu.  Do you think that metasploit
would fit into universe or multiverse?  I would think that it is free
enough for universe according to


but if there are any doubts it probably should be placed into
multiverse.  The major factor here would be how "free" metasploit is
considered to be if the sources cannot be modified for distribution.
That might make it ripe for the multiverse category...
