Any chance of getting all non-Free firmware to Require: some empty
package (say freedom-loss or proprietary-crap :-) such that:
- one could yum erase this package and end up without any non-Free
Software installed, and
- one could easily veirfy that custom distros with a subset of the
complete Fedora package set don't include any such proprietary
The entire goal of standardizing on a specific license tag be used is
that it's easy to have a simple script for query/removing/installing or
whatnot and _not_ have to do magic packages like this. Maintaining such
a package is always and without fail an absolute nitemare to do.
