	Umm, I don't understand -- are you unhappy with
 kernel-package? How would you want the packaging enhanced?
 kernel-package was created (back when Simon used to create the
 packages) to help out with the kernel packages maintainer, so they
 could concentrate on the *content*, and leave adminstravia to the
 kernel-package maintainer. This used to work well in the past. 

	If I have been remiss, I apologize. Could you send me a list
 of changes you wish to see in the packaging scheme?

	I would rather not see two different schemes of packaging
 kernels used in debian. This is a critical part of the project, and
 should not be allowed to splinter (can you imagine the confusion if
 there were a bug in one schema and not the other?)
