Re: non-free firmware: driver in main or contrib?

FYI, you don't even need an emulator to get a free CPU. There is an
implementation of the Sparc v8 processor called Leon-2, licensed under
GNU LGPL. The project was initially started by the European Space
Agency. The VHDL code is available, so you just need an FPGA.

There is an argument that the whole of Debian belongs in 'contrib' rahter
than 'main' because there is no entirely free (as in speech) machine on
which it can run.
I think there are free CPU designs around and you could probably
compile a free emulator to run on one of them.
