Actually, this seems to be the only reasonable way to do that: The firmware
stuff is NOT free (and thus should not be available in any repo), but you can
(and have to!) download it somehow. So either you make the user do it all
manually (as suggested on the upstream web pages) or you provide him with such
a script. Of course it would be nice if there were some kind of dialog during
the installation process that told the user about what he has to do; currently
it is like waiting for the user to browse the system log after something has
been left in a not working state.

Sorry, but you are referring to the other Broadcom firmware images for older
devices, not this newer firmware for the new, in-kernel driver. That firmware
_is_ distributable and is in the kernel-firmware package already.
