I tend to agree.  Currently we have kernel-source-version and/or
kernel-headers-version which are symlinked to linux-version and possibly
linux under /usr/src.  I think it might be better for
linux-source-version and linux-headers-version to either both be used if
you want the kernel source (linux-source depends linux-headers perhaps?)
or they conflict each other, perhaps with source also replacing headers?

Just a thought, perhaps something to consider for potato?
