you cant until we get <closed source driver package foo> working", the reply
is of course "blow it out your arse^H^H^H^Htalk to the package maintainer,
this will not hold up stabilization efforts"
If we're gonna go with this policy here, I'm also going to adopt it for
X so we don't get stuck in limbo as happened fairly recently.
If we're going to do this, we should just keep the unfree drivers in testing.
