Good idea, but I think there will always be some distro overrides 
needed.  Look at our last change in the changelog (fdx? - detail escapes 
me ATM)...but when I researched it, it was brought up before on the udev 
list, hashed out on the udev list, and finally a change made that didn't 
quite match the recommendation because two distros disagreed (I forget 
who).  The compromise was still better than the original, but we still 
needed to change it for our take on what was correct.  Hopefully though, 
the overrides will be cut to a minimum.
