 Quite interesting, although related to code running on the host, most
 of the thread is interesting.

 Interesting, and particularly this:
 (where it is stated that if the source has been lost, binary is the
 preferred form of modification, which could eventually match the Sagem

 Hmm that's a strong commitment of Debian, and I can't argue against

 Anyway, my initial goal was only to report some history of Sagem with
 this driver, and stating that Pierre Machard cann't reply to this right

 I'm really sorry I re-started a long-discussed troll again, and I'm sad
 Debian won't provide support for a lot of hardware in a close future.
