cant it be moved forward?

yes, that is the plan. the live syntax is supposed to go away and
the kernel syntax should be taken over. so feel free to clean up
your code and send it upstream. tell me when it is in the
snapshots or in svn even. I would need a amd64 package, but i can
build that myself.
