Why? I've been using Debian for quite some time but I've never checked
that the package I'm about to install is coming from main or from
contrib. Yes, I understand that there are technical/legal reasons for
putting packages in contrib instead of main, but with my "dumb user" hat
on, I simply _do not care_.

I simply can not understand why you all are making such a big fuss about
ndiswrapper being in contrib or in main.
