I deprecate the use of "free" to describe software because of it's
dual meaning.  Much better terms are "freed" or "libre" meaning
freedom, or "gratis" to mean zero cost.  Thus, the "Free Qt License"
is the "Gratis Qt License".  Same thing for X11R6.4.  Software the
uses the GPL is "freed software", or "libre software".
