Manual would certainly avoid any and all race problems. But on the other
hand, wouldn't it be pretty much as educational to edit the generated
file? This is assuming that educational text explaining either situation
is in the book. So a person wouldn't have to know the detail behind
*how* the script works because they will be able to see the output of it
when it generates the rules file that the book instructs them to edit.

I'm indifferent on this. I see merit in both ways. However, if there is
ever to be a cooperative udev configuration between the books, we will
need community feedback.
