I'm against this patch.

I was planning to write some "DKMS Policy" later tonight (together with an 
announcemente/call for testing of dh_dkms), and one of my points was "the 
package name must be $something-dkms".
This is coherent with other teams in Debian: lib*-perl, python-*, lib*-cil, 
and so on. Even module-assistant-driven modules seem to have settled on *-
source, but I admit I haven't checked this thoroughly.

IMHO we can discuss whether it should be *-dkms or *-source-dkms, but I don't 
want people messing with package namespace.

Giuseppe, what do you think?
