Well, in fairness it was broken upstream and the Fedora maintainer
(Harald) didn't notice that it was broken until now (when I filed
bug 183288 after emailing the list and getting no "me too" responses),
and it's a little difficult to get backwards compatibility working
without the option. I'd like backwards compatibility too, but I'll
admit that on my own system my initial hack to get it working was
exactly the same one (without the hyphen) as Harald's. Others know
more about udev than I, though.

Right. Which is why the problem was at least masked on hal-using programs,
and thus why Harald and others didn't notice the problem before now.
