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.
