I don't think all device subsystems are udev-compatible at the moment 
(the 'input' subsystem rings a bell here).  Additionally, I don't think 
we handle 'coldplug' events correctly, somewhat ironically, without the 
'hotplug' scripts around.  Alexander will no doubt correct me on the 
above though :)
