Notice that this issue rejoins the discussion about metapackages we had
concerning the 2.6.16-only etch branch, where i proposed already a similar
scheme (altough having the normal linux-image-foo for etch, and another set of
metapackages for the latest sid version not aimed at etch).

Could you also please discuss with the d-i people the oportunity of, not
including the .udeb generation into the main linux-2.6 packages, but
integrating them again in a single source linux-2.6-udebs or whatever package,
which would hold all arches, over the current situation ?
