The difficulty here is that in the arcade machine/toll booth case, the
person who (IMO) requires source access to exercise his freedoms is the
machine _owner_ or toll booth operating company, not the player or
tollee. An arcade owner isn't going to allow me to upload hacked
firmware to his machines (sadly :-).

How do you distinguish between an arcade user and someone using a web
application? Is it the presence of a network connecting the two?
