You can't compare packaging two unrelated and independant programs which
can be built completely independantly with the kernel modules which can
not be built completely without the kernel source (which varies
independantly of the module sources). A change to either the kernel
sources or module sources will require a rebuild.
So any comparison of an application to kernel modules is completely
irrelevant and pretty much pure nonsense.
