Well, they and Jens would have to comment on this, i would love it too to
happen. Actually apart from the actual infrastructure, there is only a few
info needed :
2) for each flavour :
a) config file.
3) actual patches. Maybe a per flavour mechanism would be nice.
4) Maybe the actual version to use per arch. Including the debian revision.
The d-i kernel-wedge package already does something similar, so it may not be
all that difficult, but maybe too late now given the release schedule.
