Well, in this case, that's mostly the same. I'm sure there are people in
Debian which are interested (even outside of me). But here, the kernel
team has the final word (well, or the tech ctte, but I really don't see
the point of that).

Honestly, having multiple linux source package in the archive doesn't
really sound like a good idea. I don't really think the kernel team
would appreciate, I'm pretty sure ftpmasters would disagree, and as a
member of the security team, It's definitely something I would object.
