	Hrm... seems like that where the brand name comes from should be a
configurable data source. For PCI, we could use the pci db, perhaps. For
other buses, we could use already-existing projects, or we could make
our own. If somebody started a project, we could give them our data and
reconfigure our database to pull from theirs.
