    Red Hat will ship two kernels. Well, they actually ship now about 4 ones
    or something. So they will ship 8.

    Plus they will ship a script that recompiles kernel without user crawling
    in documentation.
    It should be an option in linuxconf: recompile local kernel:
    which compiles and installs 2 hardware/situation optimized/configured
    kernels: debug and production.
    I am sure company like redhat can ship a little new linuxconf module.

    Don't worry, people can make good use of multiple options.
    If you provide orthogonal tools they will provide orthogonal solutions.
