I suppose I should have clarified that I meant a repository of
*source* packages.  As near as I can tell, there would be nothing
stopping fedora.us from distributing pine, qmail, and other programs
will similar licenses as source rpms.  Users would just have to
"apt-get --compile source pine" or whatever.

It might not be an elegant solution, but it would be better than
nothing, I suppose...
