Yes, that's what I'm talking about - you absolutely can and should be able to 
install any (free or proprietary) software you want (and have the rights to), 
just don't call it an official part of something that is truly open (both in 
term of standards and freedom), and even more importantly, don't warp the 
free things to accomodate the proprietary ones. Note that this is my personal 
view/wishes, not OpenMoko's, so any officials are welcome to comment :)
