Default versatile udebs and d-i images


We now have a mostly working linux/versatile kernel in lucid, but to
get to the vmlinuz file, a script such as rootstock would have to:
a) figure out what the latest .deb name is in lucid (ABI name +
b) download and verify that .deb
c) unpack it and get to the vmlinuz file

I'd love if we could re-enable versatile udebs and d-i images in lucid;
that would give installation mediums for qemu/versatile (people would
just run "qemu -kernel foo -initrd bar" and would get to d-i and be
able to configure their system interactively) and would also make it
much simpler for scripts such as rootstock to find a kernel (would just
pull from a fixed URL below
http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/dists/lucid/main/installer-armel/current/images/ )

Is there any interest/objection to doing this?
