Default kernel headers by default revisit...

IMHO, the installation and updating of linux-headers-generic and (eg)
linux-headers-3.2.0-26, linux-headers-3.2.0-26-generic is unneeded for
Ubuntu desktop users by large; I always remove these on
non-development setups.

Provided the dependencies are correct, it'll be pulled in by eg dkms,
libc-dev etc when expected.

So, what is the current justification for installing these packages per default?
