Ah, ok.  I guess (based on other comments of yours below) that this is 
irrelevant for the packaging currently in Debian Sid.  I will update 
when things change there.

Debian "main" tells that it is free software.

I guess you mean Debian "unstable" a.k.a. "Sid" (updated every 6 hours,

I have added another made-up package fso2-frameworkd to reflect this.
