Can't the userland tools be packaged and somekind of install script for the uvcvideo module be installed if the iSight is present?

Something like a install line somewhere in /etc/modprobe.d/uvcvideo:

install uvcvideo /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install uvcvideo && { /usr/lib/udev/ift-load -f /lib/firmware/isight.fw -b 005 -d 003 ; }

Maybe a script to detect the various models available and in what bus they are and check if the firmware is loaded (the device id also changes when the firmware is loaded), and load it if needed...
