this is part of a bigger issue. I am thinking of starting a project
called System Libre (a take on software libre) which would be open from
the ground up. This is a response to many bad trends in our business,
where the systems are gradually getting locked up (xbox, EFI, etc.) and
we can't do much with them. So I like your idea.
