The current kernel packages include the version number in the package
name, whereas Robert seems to be suggesting that his package would
maintain the same name. As a result, if I upgrade a stable box, I'm
going to need to reboot the system, whereas currently I can upgrade
everything other than the kernel and then deal with the kernel at my
leisure. I think this is a regression.
