Give it up. Packagers can trivially generate their own sub-packages. They 
do it all the time. They already do it for the user-mode header files, 
extracted from the kernel - something you've worked on yourself.

So your point is clearly bogus, and dishonest.

You haven't actually looked the real problem in the eye, and acknowledged 
the disaster that is oprofile. Let's give a _new_ approach a chance, and 
see if we can avoid the mistakes of yesteryear this time.
