Bull. We are Debian, not fucking RedHat or Mandrake. We strive to
exist without non-free software and using its existance as an excuse
to make your packages far worse is a complete disgrace to the project.

Linus doesn't support binary-only modules. He doesn't care about them.
That's why they break. This attitude is good. We should ignore
non-free software, or at least not give it enough attention to let it
hurt the quality of our free software packages.
