    1) Your paragraph is invalid because devfs can
    be used in a number of capacities
    a) Fully replace standard /dev, and run
    in total compatibility mode. (And
    it has persistence with devfsd, no
    more bullshit from you people)
    b) Allow for automatic population of
    standard /dev
    c) deconfigured.
    2) You've all been notified of these very same
    things a zillion times.
