That could be possible too but more important is a page where:

   1. the user clicks on a link
   2. ichecks what hardware you have
   3. checks what drivers and firmware you are using for each hardware
   4. verifies which firmware has blobs (from linux-libre scripts)
   5. verifies which hardware is nonfree (from linux-libre scripts)
   6. asks the user if the hardware that uses free drivers and firmware work
   7. adds this data to the database
   8. reports to the user what nonfree software s/he is using.

I suppose you can find it in the linux-libre scripts.

I am copying this mail to that list so we can be sure. If they respond, 
I will forward it to this list.
