i don't think we are in a position to remove kernel module packages or
collate them into a single one.

the usefulness of the very object we are talking about has been debated
and the conclusion is, that it is there merely for legacy reasons.

there _is_ a number of packages that bundle serveral smallish useful
scripts/macros/thingies together, regardless of authors, so it is not
that bad a practice you believe it is.
