It'll take a bit, but I'll start on it.  (Actually I'll start at the end
and work backwards, in case anybody else is starting at the beginning.)

For reference, to see your devices in a format that can be compared to
the list fairly easily, you can:

ls -l /dev | grep ^[bc] | sort -s -k 5,5n -k 1.1,1.1 -k 6,6n

but of course that doesn't show devices in subdirectories of /dev, and
it only shows devices that your system supports.

Yeah, we should probably fix that one, at least.  OTOH, if the user uses
persistent names, they won't need to use sr* or scd*.  Oh well, it
should still be corrected.

Mine all have my user's primary GID.  That's odd.

OTOH, /dev/pts isn't handled by udev either, it's handled by the devpts
filesystem.  According to the grantpt(3) manpage, the GID of the slave
device isn't specified in any standard; it may just be that your devpts
decides to use the tape group for some crazy reason.

tape isn't your user's primary GID, is it?
