To the best of my knowledge, the GTA01 is only shipped to developers,
i.e. it will never be (and never was) a consumer device. The consumer
device is based on the GTA02 hardware. Since GTA02 doens't have any
binary-only driver issues, I don't see a valid point here.
roh/michael: can you please make sure the wiki doesn't raise the
impression that the gta02 device will require a binary-only driver.
