I should explain what "hard-core non-free" is for.

There e.g. is linuxsampler


using the GPL, with an exception, does make the GPL null and void.


For the policy of Debian and *buntus this is a no-go, resp. there's a
little chance that it could be included to official *buntu repositories,
but there's absolutely no chance, that it ever will be included to an
official Debian repository.

Another issue often is caused by real license and/or patent issues.
Cinelerra http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinelerra is a good example for
this problem. JFTR it's not nearly professional. AFAIK there's no
professional NLE video software for Linux available.
