Except that selenium is non-free: it's in the non-free repository of
Debian, because it contains a pre-built .xpi plugin for firefox, which
itself contains pre-built .so and .dll files.

So, we're on the same page, but selenium is a bad tool... :)

Chatting with Maxime Vidori on IRC, there's a bunch of alternative
solutions that we could use instead of Selenium. PhantomJS for example
is already in Debian main. I would very much welcome switching to that
instead of Selenium.
