I have one concern for that solution, how are we gonna build free packages if they can use 
non-free packages from the same repo. It seems technically a bit too complicated. BS would 
need some rewrite or we would have to rename a lot of packages that are currently in non-free.

But on the other hand if some packages that require faac and also some package that is both 
in non-free and in core then how do we solve this problem? Packages in tainted probably 
don't use non-free as a media for buildrequires.
