Yeah, John and I did discuss it briefly, and I think he was going to
create a new b43-fwcutter package and submit it for review.

Rawhide is... well, rawhide. You get to keep both pieces when it breaks.
But I agree that before we switch F-7 to the new driver (which we'd like
to do, because it's better), we should have a slightly more coherent
strategy in place.

If we could find a way to 'convert' the old-style extracted firmware to
the new format, that would make it a lot easier -- it could be a %post
script in b43-fwcutter then, and the new kernel could require
b43-fwcutter (or conflict with bcm43xx-fwcutter, perhaps).
