And why should this be a reason to stop packaging dolphin? If dolphin
can be packaged without the binaries we should definitely have it in
Guix. How will we be able to reverse engineer proprietary software, if
we don't have a way to test it? And besides there are free software
gamecube homebrew applications which can run on dolphin.

David if you don't intend to continue on this patch, I will take it over
to try and find if it possible for it to be built without any
proprietary binaries.
