 I object.

 As an academic exercise this is fine and dandy, but having two
 competing packagings of the same _basic_ component can't do us any
 good.  If you have a problem with the way kernel packages are handled
 (upgrades in particular, which seems to be your problem), go talk with
 the official kernel image packages maintainer and work something out.
 This creates _more_ work for everybody.  What do you want to do with
 binaries of kernel modules?  Have more duplication of effort?
