For quite some people it's very difficult (hi bro!), for some it's impossible 
(hi dad!) and for most of the rest it's a PITA (hi me!). And, for another 
tiny fraction it is easy and smells like freedom.

Maybe we should really provide two sets of Debian install media for 
squeeze, "pure Debian" and "Debian with non-free firmwarez included". Then, 
after two releases we can look at the download statistics and see, if we want 
to continue that...
