I maintain he unicorn driver, which is as non-free as it can get
(containing evil x86 binary only object file).

Please, demostrate to me how i am acting non-ethically by doing this,
and if you fail to do so, i certainly hope that you will promptly
present me excuses for this accusation of non-ethically you are making
against me. I feel that what you are doing is nothing more than
diffamation, which in itself is illegal in many countries (probably even
yours ?), and as unethical as you can get.
