Alexander, what's your motive here? I'm just trying to understand your 
point of view better. The above comment you made is more of a 
social/political evaluation than a technical argument. I do agree that 
the editors should understand udev better than they do, but the solution 
isn't dropping udev from the book. How do you come to understand udev so 
well? What resources do you use? Point the way, please.
