I think we need to resolve the issue of the location of the
modules before we start adding 'modules' support to
and creating new set tar files.

I am not alone in being unhappy with the current path naming
scheme and location of the modules and the resulting lossage
(and lack of useful diagnostics) that occurs when you install
a new kernel without the modules.

I should (re)start a (separate) discussion on this naming topic.
