We decided to move these into the FSD because that had some advantages.
It also has some disadvantages.  It isn't a perfect fit, and this
is an example of how it is not perfect.

But I think it's ok to have a less-than-perfect fit here,
since there is no obvious perfect alternative.

"For software only available on Replicant see F-Droid (which contains a small percent of software with nonfree issues which are prominently warned about prior to install)." -

We could add the link after that text for people interested in single-platform free software like this:

"See [ Wikipedia for single-platform free software] that only run on proprietary operating systems. But please make sure that they are fully free because anyone can add content to Wikipedia."

This is a very imperfect solution but still somewhat useful, what do you think about it?
