I manually downloaded bikeshed_1.42-0ubuntu1_all.deb package from 14.04, extracted it, ran "sudo usr/bin/purge-old-kernels".
It works as expected.

So the purge-old-kernels script may be successfully included to 12.04 package. Please add it.

You're welcome to get the purge-old-kernels script, which moved from bikeshed to byobu, recently. You can install it easily from the byobu ppa: ppa:byobu/ppa. But I don't think we're going to sru this back to Precise or Trusty, I'm afraid.
