The proposed homebrew formulae will not push for non-free packages. It will simply provide the options for the user to enable two non-free components (openssh and fdk-aac currently) if they desire. They have to be explicitly enabled by the user by manually including the appropriate option, such as "--with-fdk-aac".

I do not believe the homebrew recipe will automatically enable any non-free components. Refer to "def install" in the draft formulae provided by Werner in this thread.
