Actually, I was referring to the "we shouldn't have to say GNU/Linux"
stuff as terminology flamebait.
I wasn't finding any fault in the Gnewsense folks' handling of afio, of
course. Tom "spot" Calloway called their attention to the dodgy
licence, and they promptly removed it as proprietary, as you say. (If
you're one of those folks, then "Good on ya!", as the Aussies say.)

No, if by "tainting" you mean pointing out that a package has licence
problems, I'm downright grateful for it.
