If you supply a driver, I'm sure that it would be integrated if it was
clean. However, I believe none of the "usual suspects" are interested
in spending time and effort on doing this. I doubt anyone would
*reject* a driver written by a volunteer, but the "directed volunteer"
efforts usually go twoards stuff that isn't "crap", meaning stuff
a lot of people really want to use.
