[current] and [base] --> [core]

do we have anything non-free in [current] or [base]? 
i cannot find anyhting.

if the whole contents of [extra] are going to be on a DVD, things are 
different... one has then to make sure, when this ISO image is made, 
that the non-free things do not get included... just have a blacklist 
of licences or a whitelist of licences for building the iso.
