	Oh, I think I'd just go so far as to put a commented out
 example in /etc/kernel-pkg.conf. Like:
# This is the debian revision number (defaulted to 1.0 in debian.rules)
# You may leave it commented out if you use the wrapper script, or
# if you create just one kernel-image package per linux kernel revision
# debian := 5:c501

	People may just uncomment that if they wish (currently the
 commented out part is debian := 1.0).
