Pre-built kernels are appropriate for standard and newbie systems, but
what you might consider is packaging a kernel .config file with the
options for your custom kernel, having the package prereq kernel-source,
and having the spec file compile the kernel with that .config file and
install it under a name derived from the package-name.

Of course, we'll get performance complaints about urpmi running for 3 or
4 hours, but hey, it's a lot less of a bandwidth/space hog.
