So what are we going to do now? Are we going to have a script that

have to be warned that the images are non-free/under a non-commercial
To individuals it will not be a problem, the only thing they want to
do is play a game but for commercial purposes, or if you want to
modify and distribute it, then problems might happen. This should be
very clearly addressed to the user that is installing the package.
Give them a choice, if someone is a really determined supporter of
Free Culture, they will know that the package has images/music that
does not have a free license and not install it.
Unless Parabola will have rules on including non-free images/music
then I think this method should be applied. (I don't know how to write
the script though.)
