The GNU FSDG says "The distro must contain no DRM, no back doors, and no
spyware."  Since GNU Guix has committed to follow the FSDG, that means
that we must not include programs that include spyware.  We have
committed ourselves to "removing such programs if any are discovered."

Guix _is_ committed to the GNU FSDG, right?

Do you agree that #1 and #3 look like spyware?  If so, wouldn't that
make them blockers?
