And the logistics of this will be less for Extras? If the logistical
cost of stand-alone modules inside Core is too burdensome, I'm fine
with fedora project stating that stand alone kernel modules wont be
allow even in Extras and all modules will be included in the Core
kernel as a matter of policy. But i think its not equitable to push
a deep logistical problem out of Core into Extras, especially since
some of the work to make stand-alone kernel modules easier to package
are probably going to require changes to how the kernel is packaged
inside Core. And i want to see that dialog as part of the development
tree testing process instead of push outside of Core to languish.
