Good news. I was in the process of doing it myself!

This probably can be done without any distribution specifics. It would
be good if it actually contacts ndiswrapper project page (probably
'supported chipsets' page) and gets the link for the driver from which
it downloads the driver. That way, if the link changes, the scripts
themselves don't need to be changed, but the link on 'supported
chipsets', which anyway has to be changed.
