I see.  That's okay by me then.  Still, I wonder whether the package
is really necessary with my packages in Debian proper, and a
synchronized upload would be nice no matter what.

Plain and simple, building from the headers only will never work for
the current build structure of mol.

It's probably better to keep the pre-packaged modules in a separate
source package, mainly because they need to be rebuilt against new
releases of both the kernel and mol.  And I do *not* rebuild the
kernel, but only unpack and depend the source tree.  This is not a big
