As I recall it the change to linux-image happened after the Sarge release, 
actually just checked my install kernel is still named the old way.

apt-cache policy kernel-image-2.6.8-11-amd64-generic
kernel-image-2.6.8-11-amd64-generic:
  Installed: 2.6.8-14
  Candidate: 2.6.8-14
  Version table:
 *** 2.6.8-14 0
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

BTW no need to CC me I read this list, thanks.
