    Yes it could but why should it? The purpose of udev is to maintain
    dynamic /dev. Do you want to have thoustands quirks in udev to cope
    with bazillion configuration files for utilities whose authors refuse
    to adopt standard naming convention [for the operating system in

    I do not understand why Joerg is so fixed on presenting SCSI interface
    to userspace. Why when I mount just burned CD I can use /dev/scd0 but
    for writing it I should say dev=5,4,0?? I do not really care that
    internally X,Y,Z might or might not used, they should not be exposed
    to userspace, especially since days when they could be used for static
    device identification are long gone.
