Did you read my use cases for alsa-source and ndiswrapper-source?
When you try to dpkg -i the output of alsa-source and it breaks,
you can fix it.  When you try to dpkg -i the output of 
ndiswrapper-source and it breaks, you can't fix it because now your
network card is hosed.

Just answer that to my satisfaction and I'll shut up.

All I know is that I had a great deal of trouble with the upgrade
and noticed that my -utils was out of sync with my -source.

Your atitude has been combattive and non-productive.
