Re: Some thoughts about firmware inclusion.

This is not meant as a facetious question but how does this pan out with regards to emulators? Most of which require some sort of firmware which runs on the 'virtual' CPU which is technically speaking running on the real CPU, perhaps even more so in cases where JIT compilation is used. I suppose it boils down to an accepted Fedora definition of firmware.
