	This is not quite correct. The kernel-image postinst can
 optionally *not* do the symlinks -- however, it does do the symlink
 changes as a default, unless asked not to.

	*My* current practice is to allow kernel package to manage
 /vmlinuz and /vmlinuz.old, and manage /vmlinuz.stable,
 /vmlinuz.unstable manually, and have /boot/linux.bin and
 /boot/root.bin as rescue kernels
