I'm not convinced it is a good idea to have filtering done at server-side.
It would be IMHO much better if it was filtered at client side, it can then
be possible to allow the user to show the non-free plugins if they want, or
even, display them when there's nothing else (with a note indicating it's
not free).

Also, both sides should be backwards compatible if possible, so that
current unpatched binaries can use our system and our patched binaries
can use the mozilla datasource.
