Why isn't there a script or at least a decent howto to let users
to choose/patch/compile their own kernels and restricted drivers,
even if not supported anymore by ubuntu?

For each release of ubuntu/kubuntu I managed to compile
my own kernel. One of the reasons is just the suspend2 that
works pretty fine with my computer. But I always needed to find
a tricky way to do that. For example for the edgy, after following
and changing an howto, I needed to install nvidia-drivers not
using the kubuntu/debian way. I think there should be additional
documentation to recompile the kernel and handle restricted
drivers. The lack of it is the main reason why I still didn't adopt
kubuntu for my production system.
