keep cool; eudev has its merits, I'm just trying to figure out what is a real one and what is a pure guess on the future. For me, the main advantage for eudev is the loose coupling with the kernel, which we have no way to control/force in gentoo, and in some worlds (embedded) it is often, unfortunately, not even an option to use a recent kernel.
