kernel headers by default revisit...

IMHO, the installation and updating of linux-headers-generic,
linux-headers-3.2.0-26, linux-headers-3.2.0-26-generic is unneeded for
~98% of Ubuntu desktop users.

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?
