This sounds interesting.  How would this be integrated into Debian without
messing around with the Kernel makefiles?  I'm assuming that we want to
leave the kernel source in a vanilla state.  Does Debian use a vanilla
version of the kernel sources or does it modify them some way, besides
standard patches?

What would be really nice is a Debianized kernel
configuration/build/install front end to make it easier for newbies to
configure the kernel and install modules.  ...wishful thinking, I know.
