     A most desired addition to mdev would be to provide a means for
Xorg to autoconfigure, which it does now, IIUC, with the help of
libudev. This doesn't means using the same API as libudev because I bet
Xorg people would be open to an alternative.

     Not saying this is easy, but it's not the same thing as pursuing
the whole udev...
