Is there any possibility of having the various foo-modules-2.4.xx packages
be built concurrently with kernel-image-2.4.xx too?

Something like:

		Build-Depends: linus-kernel (=2.4.21),
			pcmcia-source, alsa-modules-source
		Binaries: kernel-image-2.4.21, pcmcia-modules-2.4.21, 

Having kernel modules associated with the kernel source package they're
built for makes it a bunch easier to make sure they're deleted from
the archive along with the corresponding kernel images, and makes sure
that when someone uploads a new kernel image, new module images get
uploaded too.

Pretty please?
