At less than 4kB per .config file, no objections from me (and I have /boot
on a separate, small partition).

If kernel-package is going to be modified to install .config under /boot,
could /sbin/installkernel (from debianutils) be modified to do the same?
(For people who don't use kernel-package, like me.)
