I can't think of a good way to do it, either. I just substitute buster
with beowulf, but that only works because I know what's in my
sources.list. That could break all kinds of third-party repos.

Adding non-free where it's not wanted will anger some people. Removing it
where it's wanted might break some systems.

This might be a good one to ask the users.
