kmod-gspca has been available in livna for a long time. And I loved
it, as it provided me an easy way to use my webcam.

But at every kernel update, it was a PITA to wait for the kmod until I
could update the kernel.

If Fedora had accepted the kmod in its repositories, would it have
ever been included in mainstream kernel as it is today (which is the
only real solution) ?

By refusing kmods, we have more motivation to actually try and include
upstream what we really need to use. If we can simply install the
kmod, who cares if it's upstreamed ?
