We've had similar but seprate packages for a long time now.  All about
finding something that works for both of us well.

I don't know.  Yum isn't ready to handle kernel modules yet.  My patch
wont be in 2.3.4 and there more patches that need writing to deal with "I
need to install kernel-module-openafs now what VRs do I install?"  The
hard ones.

Since OpenAFS seems to be the common case to a lot of folks, and isn't
trivial to package...might as well let folks have a look.  :-)
