my point though wasnt to knock ati (although it was fun), the point was that i do not believe any closed source driver in our tree should ever be grounds for preventing stabilization of a kernel ebuild

so next time dsd (or whoever the ninja kernel maintainer happens to be at the time) says "hey i plan on stabilizing Linux x.y.z" and someone goes "wait, 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.
