We should make FreedomBox!

Sure we then also help pave the way for FreedomPhone and FreedomCloud.  
But that is not our aim, so I disagree that we "should" do that - it is

Just as many years of Skolelinux work on automating most possible of a 
school installation helped pave the way for FreedomBox - without that 
project having as goal to support freedom fighters.
