I don't really mean it. I think when the "dependency" is across some
hard interface like the PCI bus, a serial port, or a network, it is
none of Debian's business.
As far as I can tell, the arguments that a driver depends on firmware
apply equally well to those programs that talk across some
communications link to another program. If the general conclusion is
that the driver depends on firmware, I would like to know what makes
the packages I listed different.
