I think we're talking in the 'free as in speech' sense here. The word
'libre' in French means this, they have another word for 'free as in
beer' (gratis). In Dutch that's 'vrij' and 'gratis' respectively,
and in German that would be 'frei' and 'gratis/umsonst'. But you
likely know that better than I do. :)

Sounds good, let's please postpone the discussion on this so we
have something left to talk about at the conference. ;)
