I'm certainly happy to follow whatever standard that people arrive at that
works, but unfortunately I don't have a lot of time to try to help propose
and develop the standard and test the implications.  It may end up being
somewhat moot anyway since we have at least one report that a new kernel
module does indeed require a new openafs-client -- I'm going to check with
upstream about that.
