This idea has technical merit and it has sparked a very insightful
discussion in which I learned many things that I did not know. My
original intention in emailing the list was to learn such things, so my
email has fulfilled its purpose.

My email has also led to an interesting off list conversation between
myself and Peter about this. I believe that the exchange of ideas that
this prompted has been mutually beneficial. My hope is that our
discussion catalyzes improvements in both Gentoo and coreboot.

RHEL is a distribution, but I understand that RedHat does a great deal
of upstream programming and is also upstream for some things. Do you
consider it to be inappropriate for us to play a larger role in both
upstream development and as upstream ourselves?
