Installing stand-alone Linux-Libre debs generally just works. Using them
(or the Wheezy kernel) as the default kernel is something else
entirely. Much of the work on Parkes involved matching the kernel
(version) in several packages. Differences with Wheezy and Linux-libre
are much bigger and so would involve more work. Tracking Linux-libre
releases does not fit with using stable Debian releases as a base and
using the Wheezy kernel would probably create more problems than it
would solve (especially given our limited developer resources).
