What's the rationale for this one?

I think it would make more sense to only configure the system to enable
the non-free-firmware component if the installer determines that
packages from that component are useful for the running system (or if
the user explicitly asked to do so).

If I'm not mistaken, code to do this already exists, and seems to work
well (but do correct me if I'm wrong).


I will have a Tin-Actinium-Potassium mixture, thanks.
