If the driver is never selected automatically, and a user has to
choose it from the driver list.. I don't see the harm in including it
on the basis of it not working completely.  If you are selecting
drivers through a list manually, there's no expectation that you'll
make a decent choice regadless of what drivers are in the list.

I'd be more inclined to see it dropped on the basis that its still
going to be going through rather significant development which would
result in frequent package updates.. updates everyone will need to
install but very few people will be using because its not selected via
automated hardware detection.
