Why? Decompressing factory BIOS is not our main goal. It may be convenient
to get the VGA BIOS from some factory BIOS in this way, but I hope we
won't have to suck in loads of code from other projects for that.
buildrom is already able to fetch additional packages from the net,
why not reuse that functionality?
