I think this argument is invalid. We should ban _all_ module packages
from Core and Extras anyway.
That's a valid viewpoint. Assuming Fedora Core/Extras indeed bans all
external kernel module packages, does it have the authority/interest
to maintain a kernel module packaging guide? If not who should?
