I'm not opposed to either of those, though I also don't feel that they are 
must-haves. I suppose we also have to start looking at the image size. The 
current alpha-raw contents seems to weigh >600 MB already. If we're going 
to add the full sources, we might hit the CD size limit.

When the "make sure native drivers do it too" part is done and there's 
still a reasonable amount of time to test it, I'm all for including OSS.
