I'd much rather evaluate the software on its actual utility, rather than
this slippery slope idea that has us avoiding some troublesome future
license issue that doesn't exist.

We use binary blobs, and have GPL'd items (also restrictive) in the system
- no problem there.  If a pedophile wants to use DragonFly, it's that
idiot's responsibility to abide by the licenses of the software involved. 
Unless we do something unrealistic like purposefully distributing child
porn on the installer CD, this license does not affect this project.
