As one who voted yes, my rationale is already in the bug comments, and
I voted yes because it seemed to be the preference of most non-systemd
users on the mailing list.  I can't say whether this is still the case
but I'm guessing it is.  I don't think it is really a well-founded
preference but I don't really see a point in fighting it when people
can use whichever they prefer.

If the eudev bus factor drops from 1 to 0 and people get tired of
dealing with it, I suspect switching back will become more popular.
If that never happens that is fine too.  If people have unusual
configs not addressed by eudev, or just plain old good taste,  they
can always use udev or systemd.

If eudev were causing serious problems or holding back other projects
for some reason I'd feel differently.  Otherwise I tend to agree with
the sense that if you're going to make a change there should be a
reason.  The reason for the previous change was that a strong majority
had a strong preference.  Based on the tone of discussion I'm not sure
that has changed - there isn't as much vehemence in the discussion,
but I suspect that is mostly because most don't think this is likely
to happen so they don't bother to reply.
