Yeah, that's a fair point. However, it would be useful if those who _do_
care about kernel module packages would come to an agreement about how
it should be done, and that can be documented somewhere central to
Fedora -- like on the Fedora wiki.

We can modify our kernel RPM and yum if appropriate in order to support
that agreed method.

But you're right; the packaging committee don't need to waste time on
it.
