To me, that argument's as silly as the computer motherboard is included
in running a GPL program, and therefor all data about it must be
provided.

It also doesn't always hold water in all cases, you can sometimes use
some other program routines to do the same job.  Not to mention that you
may not need to supply the file, the user may already have it.
