Which of course will set up people who are stil runing potato, have a 2.4
kernel and *do* want/need ECN, since it will *silently* disable ECN.

So since netbase does not want to be the proper place, a better
fix/workaround (I'm sincerely trying hard not to be ironic!) would be to
use debconf with a default value of "0" and to inform/ask the user about
it when installing a new kernel.
