The MAME project has recently re-licensed the project to GPL2 (with GPL3

Wouldn't this change make MAME free software that depends on nonfree software in order to run?

As I understand it, the programs MAME emulates are nonfree. If so, this should raise a warning because MAME is an instance of what was known as the Java Trap ( -- a free program with nonfree dependencies.

Are there any free software programs MAME emulates?
