Another related issue just occured to me: Many of those modules
have dependencies on supporting user-space tools. Can / do we want
to have linux-modules-extra-$KVERS depend on them all?

drbd            Depends: drbd8-utils
linux-wlan-ng   Depends: linux-wlan-ng (>= ${lwnvers})
loop-aes        Depends: loop-aes-utils (>= 2.12p-1)
ndiswrapper     Depends: ndiswrapper-utils-1.8
pwc             Depends: module-init-tools
zaptel          Depends: zaptel
