Please not that these two claims are indeed true, but jonas believes it is
more important to not break whatever the user may do, rather than have good
support for official kernels, and it is thus not excluded that he likes to
support people building sarge kernels with yaird, which should be possible. I
think it was jurij who tried to do exactly this earlier last week, so i think
that it is a possible use-case, altough weird.
