I dislike the main/contrib separation in some case.
The first example is with Mozilla Thunderbird packages. Some extension
packages are in contrib. So each time thunderbird received security
update, the update cannot be installed because of non automatically
rebuild of his contrib package. And each time I see a bug report of user
asking a manual rebuilt. With only one core media, this situation will
disapear (I hope).
