I don't like the fact that we have to have firmware without source.
However, firmware is a far more necessary evil than enabling Windows
Media file support.

Firmware is also something that should've been done on the hardware in a
perfect world, WMV support is a little different.

And yes, I'm splitting hairs. I don't think firmware is really software,
and media codecs obviously are.
