direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

I don't think this is exactly what you are talking about, but it is related.
As just a User, I would like to see a kernel module and user level tools
split, on an rpm's produced level.

The reason: so I can upgrade kernels, install the newly built drbd module rpm
and not have to --force the install because it also includes the drbd tools. 
Note: this is using the same drbd release.  Granted the tools rpm should
probably depend on the version of the module installed so the api is known to

of course I could be completely insane about this...I still don't like rpm/deb
based systems, give me slackware anytime.
