I think it still leaves in a bad place for when a kernel module is
updated w/o changing kernel versions.
if you have:
and an update which is:
so the kernel module has changed version - but not kernel.
so it really, actually, needs to be updated.
which isn't a problem - except that b/c the pkg name is the same - an
update will remove ALL the older versions for that package.
so if you have:
installed - then that goes away on an update.
Maybe I missed it but I'm not sure how his proposal solves for that
