If it contains binary blobs, I wonder why radeonhd is available in the 
gNewSense repositories. It's an older version, for sure, but it's there. The 
only reason I grabbed a newer version is because the one in the gNewSense 
repositories was too old (support for my video card wasn't added until later.)
