Yes, that's my opinion. But I would like to hear some others.
Sadly true that it's our last solution.
An alternative is to not include iraf in Fedora directly but instead
package it up for RPM Fusion (rpmfusion.org).

While obviously not ideal it does at least get iraf packaged for
Fedora, and a project to replace the non-free bits could still go
ahead without the pressure of getting iraf in as soon as possible.

It looks like a good compromise. But it must be considered only as a
*temporary* solution.

Yes, but sadly we won't be able to use it in our spin anyway due to licensing issues.
