This has come up before and the position seems to be clear. If a package
produces output that can *only* be used with a commercial/closed source
piece of software then it doesn't go in TL even if the package itself is
open source. That's true for code that relies absolutely on Adobe Reader
to view the results but also in the case of for example support for
commercial fonts.
