    That could be interestingly hard, actually. Right now the kernel
    package is one of these packages designed so that multiple versions
    can be installed together. When the version of one of the firmwares
    changes, the firmware package will have to be updated. But will it
    keep the previous version? If it doesn't, the possibly still
    installed older kernels won't work anymore. If it does, it will
    accumulate a lot of files over time...
