The fact that it came from Lennart doesn't make it any less FUD.

I don't think that the eudev folks plan to completely go off in a
separate direction, so most likely whatever changes occur to systemd
to keep udev running will probably end up getting made to openrc to
keep (e)udev running.

If the argument was that we should be running eudev by default because
it is better I could buy that.  However, this seems to be an argument
based on a fear of what some other project might do in the future.

Even the great Lennart doesn't know with certainty what the future
holds for udev/systemd/etc.
