eudev has every commit scrutinized by people who care about using it on Gentoo. systemd-udev does not. Consequently, eudev has avoided the system boot breaking regressions that prompted its creation. That is a good reason to make it the new default. If it fails to fulfill its duties, then this could be revisited, but that should be unlikely. > > -Ben >
