That took less time than I thought it'd take.  (Part of the reason is
there's a lot of stuff in that text file that's very specialized, so I
ignored a lot of those devices.)

The file also says that /dev/scd* should be hardlinked to /dev/sr*, but
of course udev won't let us do that automatically.  Symlinks are
probably the next best thing.  (And since we can't do hardlinks, it will
matter what the primary name is.  My vote is to have scd* be primary,
with sr* as a symlink.)

The one other thing that I found was /dev/uinput: apparently since it's
an input driver, it's supposed to be at /dev/input/uinput.  Adding
KERNEL=="uinput" to the list of devices that get put in /dev/input
should fix it.
