The tricky part about this is that packages implicitly depend=(base)
and makedepends=(base-devel), which means that dependencies of
packages within those groups are unclear.

That's an idea.  I may try to do that with my raspberry pi this
weekend, and just use the non-free bootloader. Or, I may try writing
it a free bootloader this weekend. Or, try to publish XBS.  Or
PBS-tools. Or fix java/arduino. So many choices.

Happy hacking,
