Well you can't use the damn thing without other stuff,
and it never says "you need this stuff to use it."

Tell my why you'd ever want ndiswrapper-utils and not 
ndiswrapper-source.  Then tell me if that's the most common

There should be *some* way to say "I want to be able to use this
thing instead of just giving it to somebody else."

Just tell me how you work around this problem and I'm having,
and I'll shut up.  That's what I told the maintainer and he
never responded.

Just tell me how I'm supposed to "just know" to get -utils?
Wait until it breaks?
