Agreed.

Sure. That's brings me to another question: Will we
ship /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/kmodtool in the package "rpm-build" or do we
plan to ship it in a separate package and let rpm-build depend on it? I
would prefer the latter -- this way updates would be a lot easier,
especially now that the script and the standard is still quite new.
