What do people think about offering an option for LibreJS users to set
whether nonfree scripts should be outright blocked or if a prominent
warning should be displayed?

I think in the current state of affairs on the Web, frustrated people
may disable the extension entirely. If they had a way that they could be
warned about the nonfree JS and then still be provided a way to give
feedback to the site, they might leave the extension on more.

The default would/should still be to block.

I understand it's tricky -- we don't want to encourage anyone to run
nonfree JavaScript, but I think this option may on balance still be a
good thing.
