So I'm clueless. Rotfl. Whatever.

My offer stands, however. I've just downloaded the source to the hotplug package, and am planning to look at how deeply the udev support is entangled in there somewhere this week (maybe that's nothing for today anymore, however). If it doesn't seem to hard, I'll ITP a separate package hotplug-no-udev that will have a Provides: udev pretty soonishly. This should make both you and me happy: me, because I don't need to use udev; you, because you can drop support for non-udev systems and generally do as you please.

If you think that's an extremely bad idea, talk to me now.
