re your edit: When reading the initial wording this includes
integration with other Free "things" for me as well. I am specifically
thinking about Marble integrating Wikipedia articles, Kipi plugins
allowing upload to Wikimedia Commons, Amarok integrating with a number
of free music services and so on. Albert wrote it as "other Free
Software and products". I think that captures it a bit better.

Everyone: Thanks a lot for the valuable and constructive input.
