and because the defense for not considering the ZFS license to
problem consists of the ZFS module not being distributed in
form, whereas this suggestion would in some situations cause it
distributed in binary form.
If you have another example, I'll put it in instead. I used this
one, because I know this one works, and that's all.
That said, I'm not sure how this would cause the module to be
distributed as a binary. In order for it to be added to the
initrd, it will still need to built using the DKMS mechanism, and
thus compiled on (or at least for) the target Guix installation.
If the complaint is that one could generate a USB stick, or some
such, with ZFS in the initrd, then yes, that's possible. But
that's also possible by using the existing
‘kernel-loadable-modules’ mechanism to generate an image with
‘guix system image’ and distributing that. I don't think it's our
job to try and prevent such things, since, even if desirable, it's
not really feasible.
If the complaint is merely that it's in the documentation, then
ok, I'll change it to whatever module you want.
