This would be great - Kernel 2.6 without udev wouldn't really make
sense, would it? :-)
It would also be great to have an updated version of D-BUS as the
current D-BUS in Fedora is 0.13, and udev can use D-BUS>=0.20 to emit
D-BUS signals on the system message bus when device nodes are added and
removed (it's not enabled by default in udev).
The bad part is that packages depending on D-BUS 0.13 would require
changes on a source-level basis as non-API compatible changes were
introduced in D-BUS post 0.13. From memory, I recall that this at least
involves some CUPS stuff, the recently patched magicdev and possibly
bluez-pin if that is in FC1 today.
(My real motivation behind this cheering is of course, that at some
point I'd like to propose the freedesktop.org hal stuff I'm working on
for FC1 and I'd like to have my dependencies resolved before that :-) )
