	well, I think so, cause there really arn't much workarounds to do other
than run the devfsd.  OTOH, there are some little configuration things that
may be a little more obscure.

	An example:  I have a SB Live card and I havn't spent the time to configure
the permissions of the created entries.  Therefore, in X, a regular user
can't play anything 'cause /dev/mixer and friends are all owned by root.  I
know this is just a configuration issue, cause I've scanned over the docs,
just haven't yet had the time to fix it  :/

	Can't really think of anything else off the top of my head, but it's not
really that hard to implement so....
