Now, personally, I'm all for the complete elimination of closed-source
software :-).

But the Subversion project doesn't have a policy of not listing
non-free stuff, as far as I know. On project_links.html we already
list non-free (in all senses) software and content, for example:

   TMate
   Some Subversion books
   SVN SCC Proxy
   CW Subversion
   Subway
   sourcecross.org

I'm pretty sure we list non-free solutions alongside free ones in
faq.html too. Besides, FireDaemon Lite may have been gratis, but it
surely was never libre :-).

So, your call, but if FireDaemon is a solution that people looking at
that FAQ item would want to know about, I think we should list it.
They're *already* running a closed-source operating system, so it's
just a matter of degree at this point anyway.
