Come on, please stop arguing with random, unsuited comparisons, and use
common sense : what's the purpose of ndiswrapper without non-free
drivers to use it on? We've always put things of the like in contrib,
and if we stop doing it, we can remove contrib entirely.
The purpose of ndiswrapper is to run non-free Windows drivers on Linux.
The same is more or less true for wine and dosemu (otherwise we would
probably make a native version of said apps).
Would the situation change (contrib-wise) if ndiswrapper were integrated
into the kernel? Would we want to split the ndiswrapper part to contrib
