  And ndiswrapper does not require it. It will only be useless without a
driver, not a non-free driver. At most you could ask for it to be
removed as "useless piece of software" (which is not and we have a lot
of that in Debian is some way or other).

  BTW, if we start being more intregrist than those burning consulates
because of some drawings, we should start by removing GPG signatures and
md5sums from main, as those are invariant bits.
