Emacs has always been designed around the idea that you shouldn't need
proprietary code to use a feature, so his code can't be integrated until
it is made to also support Free alternatives.

And regardless, I find it to be an error of his to prefer
ease-of-installation over freedom.  Of course, that's just my opinion
(tho I suspect I share it with several other people on this list).
