    That may be your intention, but as soon as cards exist that can only be
    made to work with ndis-wrapped drivers, you can be sure that the masses
    won't wait for the reverse-engineering to be completed. So all the
    nvidia-video-type problems _will_ start showing up in a big population
    of laptops and such too.
