My understanding of the goal is that this package will build-depend on the
source packages of all the free external drivers that can support this
sort of automated build and then only the linux-modules-contrib
maintainers have to deal with the ever-changing exact list of kernel
versions for which modules should be built.

I don't know how far along this is yet.
