If DKMS gets added to either Core or Extras, then I think it would make
it easier to have addon module packages. Dell has used it in the past to
make ALSA RPMs for 2.4-based Red Hat distributions and that sort of
thing.

(I don't think I'll be able to make DKMS packages for Extras or anything
like that right now, however; right now I'm up to my eyeballs in kernel
stuff.)
