Well, it would be really painful to change the set name
(too many files to be fixed, including sysinst per ports),
so I'd like to confirm there is no strong objection :-)

Current other sets (base, comp, text...) are somewhat meaningful
even for users who don't know NetBSD internals (though some of
them are not so clear), so I wonder if the kernel module set should
have the similar naming scheme.

Yes, current " install=/dir" uses src/distrib/sets/Makefile
via "installworld" target in src/Makefile, so probably we have to
prepare the similar rule with the new module set file.

How about " install_module=/dir" as darcy@ suggest
on current-users?
