functions in limited mode. But users can disable LibreJS if they want, and they 
may also want to tell a friend about DuckDuckGo; both such use-cases would make 
people use non-free software and it would be GNUzilla's fault for showing the 
user that the non-free program exists.)

Should we still keep DuckDuckGo in the default list of search plugins?

I don't think DDG should be listed for that reason.
